The Scrying Ink Tarot
In this series of artworks Seattle based artist Siolo Thompson, explores the mysteries of the Petit Lenormand Tarot deck. This cartomancy system has been in use for centuries but is most associated with Madame Lenormand, a famous fortune teller who plied her trade in Napoleon's court. The artwork in this collection takes a new approach to this classic set and uses free flowing ink and water color to render the cards with fluid style and a unique contemporary twist.
Siolo Thompson is a self taught visual artist who lives and works in Seattle, WA. She uses multiple mediums and techniques in her work with a focus on draftsmanship and narrative development. A background in Comparative Literature aids Thompson in her quest to translate complex ideas, stories and emotions into the language of visual art. Thompson falls most neatly into the category of figurative realism though her work often dallies at the edges of other disciplines including comic art and animation.
Ms. Thompson has recently been signed by Llewellyn Worldwide Publishing. They will be producing and distributing her Linestrider Tarot series.
