Background

Cilla Conway is a writer, artist and tarot consultant living in London. She has been reading the tarot since 1981 when she completed The Intuitive Tarot ' (published in 2004). With a Masters in Psychotherapy and Healing and a BA in Fine Art, her knowledge and passion for the tarot communicates to clients and students alike, and her creative, enthusiastic personality is backed up by excellent communication skills and extensive business experience. She is an ACE member of Tarot Professionals and TABI organizations, has been on BBC TV as a tarot expert, and is currently preparing another deck for publication, The Devas of Creation' .

Statement

Born in Holland, brought up in Zimbabwe, I came to London in 1971 and found my life's work as an artist when I began painting a tarot deck a year later. Doodling idly one night I looked down to find I had drawn the tarot Fool but a very different Fool to those I'd seen before. His eyes, compelling and a little crazy, drew me into his world. Following him, I completed the deck and found reading with it was a joy.

A few years on, I began painting very large oils, full of other-worldly beings I called eldils (from C.S. Lewis's Out of the Silent Planet ); those led to my acceptance on a part-time fine art degree. Completing the degree in 2001, I left the world of 9-5 office work with a huge sigh of relief, and almost immediately began painting another set of images of beings rather like the eldils the Devas of Creation . At the same time the tarot was accepted for publication.

Ever since then I have been reading the tarot and the deva cards, teaching art, and producing various books (my latest project is a series of illuminated manuscripts of the astrological signs and planetary influences).
