Tarot combines many of Lauren's favorite subjects: iconography, psychology, spirituality, history, and magic. Researching and creating this deck was a direct route to understanding this ancient system of divination. In addition to printmaking, Lauren is broadly engaged in the arts, from music to costuming to commercial graphic design. She also performs and teaches Middle Eastern dance and other ethnic traditions. She lives in the Asheville area of North Carolina with her beloved husband, Draven, and an abundance of feline and serpentine companions.
