The Finished Peacock-Shapeshifter — A Reflection On An Inner World (Also: Take a peak at Kyra’s glam rock robot)

| April 24, 2013

“The peacock as a totem shares the wisdom of self-esteem. This is not to be confused with ego pride, but rather the recognition of self-worth as a divine being. Peacock summons you to “walk the talk” and share your gifts and inner beauty with the world in a peaceful and joyful way.”~ Lesley Morrison, author The Healing Wisdom of Birds…

Winged Enchantment update, new Shapeshifter Tarot release and gardening in Florida.

| February 15, 2013

Winged Enchantment Oracle update: 23 paintings done, 15 more to go! It’s hard to believe that I signed a contract for Winged Enchantment nearly three years ago. It’s harder still to believe that my first deck Shapeshifter Tarot was published fifteen years ago. Needless to say, I’ve grown from a young, intrepid artist eager to […]

Help to make a difference! Shop Small Saturday.

| November 21, 2012

Dear friends: When you “shop small” you really do make a difference to families and their communities. Please help keep Lisa Hunt Art in the black by making a purchase at my online store. Not only does it help ensure the financial health of a little-studio-that-could, but it helps nourish the soul and even invigorates further creative output…

The finished Hawk-Shapeshifter, thoughts on tarot and vintage children’s books

| July 6, 2012

Ghosts & Spirits Tarot has been generating lots of positive buzz around the blogosphere. I’m delighted to see such a diversity of perspectives from an impressive roster of reviewers. I had learned a long time ago never to be overly expectant about how others will respond to my work because it is nearly impossible to predict.

My visit to U.S. Games Systems. What a fun day!

| August 22, 2011

Here I am posing with the legendary Stuart Kaplan, tarot authority and founder of U.S. Games Systems. I enjoyed having lunch with this charismatic genius who has brought so many visionary decks and products to fruition. He knows his stuff! Not only that, but the brownie ala mode that Stuart had ordered for me was the best I ever had…

Creativity, critters, chaos and the boogie woogie

| February 10, 2011

2011 is turning into the year of the unexpected. Instead of fearing the chaos of what seems like truncated routines, I’m learning how to accept the unexpected and to be flexible. Part of this has entailed taking on projects and creating images that I never thought I’d do: new subject matter, new methods, bold creative assertions and a sense of the spontaneous along the way.

What I’m up to: Christmas Carol, Kobolds & Hearing the Tooth Fairy.

| December 6, 2010

When working, I usually have 3-4 drawings and paintings on boards at various stages. Some sit there for a month while others I tackle right away. It all depends on the mood I’m in and what I feel compelled to focus on…

Dream Ghosts, Pain & Shakespeare

| September 17, 2010

The Ghost of Banquo came to me in a dream. I saw him with vacant eyes and a wise aura. I saw stillness and movement all at once and it dominated my unconscious. It was as though The Ghost of Banquo was trying to tell me something—a prescient figure with an important message…

My 15 year journey with tarot: a retrospective

| May 29, 2010

2010 is nearly halfway over. Can you believe it? I can’t! It recently dawned on me that I did my first tarot painting 15 years ago. So much has happened since. I’ve grown from a young idealist to a middle-aged idealist. My life has changed, my art has changed, but the basic core of who I am has never been compromised

The intrepid artistic fool I am: My journey through tarot and a decade of artistic exploration.

| June 21, 2009

In 1994, I was asked to create sample art for my first deck, Shapeshifter Tarot. Back then, I was the intrepid newbie 20-something year old artist, full of dreams and fresh from recent children’s book publication, book and magazine work and a few oddities in between. I was open to anything and a tarot deck sounded like just the thing needed to satiate my longterm ambitious artistic palette and unwavering interest in myths, legends and tarot cards…
