have been collecting antique cabinet card photographs and vintage cameras since I was in art school, and have always been fascinated by the soft exposures involved with these amazing keepsakes. My love for working with hand-tinting, collage, and layering effects has been a big part of my artwork since I first starting doing photography and design. Now that I no longer have a dark room, I love the convenience of digital photography and editing. I have the ability to create worlds and characters of my own at my fingertips. Making the Starchild Tarot has been an incredible journey, and I know that looking back on all of my years of tinkering around with different mediums, and immersing myself in film and editing has been a huge contributing factor to what I am making now. I am also a huge sic-fi geek and love the vintage aesthetic of retro-futurism and experimental film from the 1960s-70s.

Here is a snapshot from this past summer - The photography for The Moonchild Tarot is underway. These are sneak peeks into the pre-editing. Most of these images will look very different from what you are seeing, and will be a combination of illustration also. Model: Jaime Claire Rose Boland. Shot by yours truly. Makeup by Candy Lefrancois.
