My favourite medium is oils, but I use most media – the Old Gods Tarot was painted in Photoshop – not collaged. My paintings are mythic, dreamlike, and often paradoxical.
A selection of some recent talks sessions. I’m not running any workshops at present.
Tarot is the oldest best-known oracle, usually containing 78 archetypal images such as Mother, Lovers, Justice. The cards are a mirror to our Selves.
A litte infomation about me, and how I ended up where I am, doing something that I really love, in a beautiful part of the world.
Oracles are a way to gain self-knowledge. They do look into the future, but they are not ‘fortune telling’ devices. Like the tarot, they are a reflection.
This is (as someone famously said) not a blog. It’s a place where I muse about life, the universe, and everything.
Announcements / News
The latest news is that the Old Gods Tarot is finally in the UK, and we’ll start fulfilling the pre-orders next week (end November). It’s an octagonal deck: there are 80 cards including 2 Fools and a Wild Card. The numbered cards are pips, so you’ll need to brush up on your numerology (there’s an illustrated section on both in the
the book). There are four or more deities in each Major Arcana, with three on each face card. The face cards are unusual: in this deck, the Queens are Goddesses and are the controlling entity of each suit – so the Goddess of Cups controls and holds the oceans and rivers of earth, supported by the God, the Priestess, and the Warrior.
My art has been described as ‘Stunning … a wealth of meaning in each image’.
It is intended to be thought-provoking and quite ambivalent.
A lovely comment…
‘Such amazing decks!!! Revolutionizing the world of Tarot and intuitive Readings for the XXIst century!’
What Customers Are Saying
“When I looked the images of the Shimmering Veil deck on the website, I was a bit shocked and very pleased to see reflections of some of the things I saw as a child of seven during a near death experience, and later during dreams. And, as I viewed them last night on Simon’s review, the backs of the cards capture so much of the Light I experienced.”

This is, perhaps, one of the most important oracles printed in our time …What is also central to this deck is the great beauty of the cards – many as mysterious as life itself – and the wonderful production values applied to them….”
