In the Tarot, the Higher Arcana is a progression through what mythologist Joseph Campbell called the "Hero’s Journey". The first card in the traditional Tarot deck is "The Fool" . "The Fool" represents the utterly open innocence, and infinite possibilities, with with we incarnate into this world. The Arcana progress through revelations, trials and initiations. The last card of is "The World", the return Home. Although my Oracle Deck, which features 52 images, is not a Tarot, I have used this metaphor in its creation. The journey is a Circle.

I've been a visionary artist for over 30 years, specializing in community art projects, sacred masks, and visionary arts. I also teach the Art of the Mask. In 2007 I had a fellowship at the Alden Dow Creativity Center to pursue my community arts project "The Hands of the Spider Woman", based upon the Native American legend; in 2009 I will be continuing the project at the Henry Luce Center at Wesley Theological University. May we all become "Beautiful Weavers".
