My favourite medium is oils, but I use most media. My paintings are mythic, dreamlike, and often paradoxical. I also don’t like work to be too obvious.
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.
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.
Announcements / News
At last, I’ve just been told that the Book of the Dead has been unloaded in Southampton and will be delivered to South London on Friday. I have heaved a huge sigh of relief.
We’ll start mailing them as fast as we can, though I hope you’ll understand that there’s a bit of a backlog. US people – it’s liable to take at least a month (given the Christmas post and the general chaos going on). UK: you should get your decks before Christmas.
I’m so happy I finally know that they have arrived. I was beginning to think they’d disappeared in a puff of smoke, never to be heard of again.
Have a look at the videos at https://www.bookofthedeadoracle.com, there’s a brief video sent by my printers, an Intro and walkthrough from me. Those are on YouTube – https://youtu.be/oN5cADmsihc and https://youtu.be/L_a15hwRWpA . Enjoy!
My art has been described as ‘Stunning … a wealth of meaning in each image’.
It is intended to be thought-provoking and quite ambivalent.
Viewers say they continue to find new elements in my work, even years later!
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.”

“THE BOOK OF THE DEAD ORACLE by CILLA CONWAY
cc3 Publications, London, 2021
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….”
