Now that I have completed all the drawings (156!) for my Tarot colouring book with Red Wheel/Weiser, I have a chance to experiment with my sketchbook again. It does seem odd not to be working on the Tarot book after spending so much time with it since last July but I continue to play with images for another even more ancient system of meditation/divination, the fascinating elder futhark runes...
A lovely new interview and article (with lots of photos) on my miniatures work in natural materials appears in the current March issue of DollsHouse and

Many thanks to DollsHouse and Miniature Scene and especially to Carl Golder, editor, for his interest in my work!
Here's the cover with a photo of my work in the upper right corner of the page.
Coming soon... My tarot color and learn book from Red Wheel/Weiser
publishing...I sent the manuscript off to my editor, the wonderful
Judika Illes, earlier this week! What a big but enjoyable work it has
been! Here is a small preview of some of the major arcana images for coloring.
