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
.In the last ‘announcement’, I said that my newest deck, The Book of the Dead Oracle, wasn’t expected to be ready till the end of 2021. As it turns out, that was a little pessimistic – the printers have done a wonderful job on the deck, but air freight was so expensive I decided to send it by sea. I got five copies for myself in Italy, but the rest will be arriving in the UK ready for shipping mid-October 2021.
So – there is a pre-order discount available till mid-October, so if you want the deck, go to https://www.devasofcreation.com (or click on SHOP above), and order it. We won’t start shipping till we get the actual decks, of course, but if you order now you’ll get the discount. And, if you go to the Oracle page (see link above), or https://www.bookofthedeadoracle.com, you’ll see a brief video on it.
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.”

“First things first. I was dazzled by The Byzantine Tarot when I saw it being used online, but when I held it in my hands, it took my breath away. Cilla’s art is simply gorgeous, in colour and in style, and the finish on the cards is perfect for giving iconic designs a golden sheen. But there is so much more to this deck than its beauty (although admittedly, this is hard to get past!).”
