Pen and Ink Tarot Card Drawings
About the art:
Many people believe that Tarot cards are more than just ink on paper, that they allow us to access our subconscious mind through occult symbology. A deck contains 78 cards, each with a theme from everyday life experience. I am not a fortune teller, but an artist fascinated with this ancient archetypal art form which has survived since the mid-15th century. This year I join my creative predecessors and reinvent yet another deck of Tarot cards.
I hold a bachelor’s degree from Eastern Illinois University and a master’s degree from the University of Illinois. I taught graphic design and multimedia at Illinois Central College for 25 years.
Recently retired, Janet now has time to pursue her art full-time from a studio in her Peoria home which she shares with Stan, the maker of beautiful jewelry. This home is filled with lots of drawings, paintings and other delightful things - including plenty of kids and grandkids.
