My Story

— Creating the deck —

When I was ten I became depressed. As awful as that is, it started me on a path of self awareness, personal development, spiritual exploration and healing. I have always excelled at art, have explored many different mediums and eventually completed a degree in printmaking. Shortly after I graduated I had a very difficult time. Fortunately, I received encouragement from my partner to adopt a practice of self expression, in the form of art. I chose watercolor, because my living / studio space was very small. Over time I began using affirmations to support my healing. The affirmations turned into artwork as I repeated the words over and over to myself while painting. I took my paints wherever I traveled and completed the artwork as part of my daily support practice. This collection of artwork became the Akashic Oracle.
