to the Color Wheel Creations home page, where you can preview
the "Wheel of Change Tarot" by Alexandra Genetti,
now in its second printing. The 78 paintings were begun in summer
1987, and ten years later the project was released by Destiny Books,
a division of Inner Traditions International of Vermont. The boxed set features the original deck as well as a 383
page book by Alexandra, including details of the symbolism in the
cards and many historical insights into the Tarot and its relation
to humanity and the natural world. There are over twenty images from
the deck here on this site, as well as sample explanations from the
book and an outline of structures and features. For

Jumbledance Tarot was created by Alexandra in summer 1998.
It consists of 78 card-sized collages, and was inspired by a June
'98 workshop with Arnell Ando (creator of Transformational Tarot
-- see our links page for information) at that summer's ATA convention
in Denver. We have the entire Major Arcana and 17 of the Minor Arcana
here on our site -- check it out!
The Flowers of Life Tarot
was created by our daughter Cerrithwen for her senior Waldorf high
school project. She has done an entire collage major arcana, and written
a small booklet to accompany the cards. If you would like to see a
couple of the Flowers of Life cards there is a wonderful
review by Paula Gibby you can check out. (We are offering
limited edition hand-made copies of this deck -- see our ordering
page. for details).
Hand colored decks: Alexandra has
been giving workshops on creating your own Tarot deck, and/or coloring
an existing black and white deck. She has primarily been using the
Italian Giovanni Vacchetta deck
from 1893, and the Pamela Coleman Smith
deck (commonly known as "Rider-Waite") for coloring.
There are numerous examples of her hand colored versions of these
on this site!
