Sarah Stewart is a contemporary visionary artist and muralist based in Charleston. Self taught, her style is intuitive and inspired by the magic of Gaia. Currently she is illustrating and writing a plant medicine tarot deck.
"Each of these paintings is part of a series of 78 botanical tarot cards that I am currently working on. As of right now I have painted 43. It has taken three years to complete the first part. The cards symbolize different archetypal experiences we go through in our lives that help initiate us into our wholeness, our healing. The cards act as a bridge to our subconscious. They become a mirror for us that reflects back the symbols and messages that want to reach us from the spirit realm. The images that one sees will vary and change with each viewer. It's helpful to stay open to the message that is being sent as you gaze into it, they are very powerfully healing and come essentially from your own ancient and timeless self.
This deck focuses on the energetic healing properties of botanicals, more specifically, flower essences.
They are plant spirits that work upon our energetic body to help restore balance and health, easing us out of old, negative and habitual mental patterns. Each flower offers a specific medicine and can help support us as we pass through these archetypal experiences of life. Plants deeply want to help us and can support us in seeing our true nature. The healing power behind this deck comes from them and their choice to inhabit these paintings as a frequency and flow freely out to all who need it. They are asking us to connect with them as our ancestors have. It is my creative intention with this deck that we all connect to and align with our ultimate Nature that desires to care for eachother, for the plants, the planet and ourselves. May we all open to the magic found in Nature. May we all see our Divinity within the flower!"
