For many years, Divination has played a natural part of my life in one form or another but the notion of creating my own deck was little more than a dream. Following a chance meeting in Provence, synchronous events paved the way for the dream to be realized and the extraordinary story of how it came into being is contained within the introduction of the guidebook.
I am a self-taught professional with a background in music and interior design and have undertaken assignments in the UK, Europe and America. The deck is my first independently published venture into illustration/writing and many of its images have been used in the creation of some very special greetings cards which can be viewed at my vintage‐inspired design house, misshavishamsattic.com.
The studio is set within a traditional Victorian cottage in the rural city of Bath. After 20+ years of living here, my partner Mike and I continue to give thanks to be residing at this world heritage site, famed for its wealth of historical interest, its ancient hot springs and home to Celtic goddess of healing – Sulis Minerva.
