Mythic fantasy artist Jessica Galbreth was born on April 29th, 1974 in Toledo, Ohio. Today, she makes her home and studio in Waterville, Ohio with her husband Josh and their two children. Though Jessica did study fine art with a major in painting for three years at the Toledo Museum of Art, she also considers herself largely a self-taught artist. She crafts her original works of art mostly with watercolors, pen and ink, but at times also utilizes an airbrush and acrylic for certain effects.
Jessica began her art career in 1999 with a modest web site. Much to her surprise, the interest in her fantasy and faery art seemed to increase very quickly once she showcased her art on-line, so she went on to expand her web site and product line. Now you can find Jessica's work in numerous formats, from prints to greeting cards to calendars and books to collectible figurines and ceramics produced by leading manufacturers throughout the world. Her work is often featured at Spencers Gifts, Hot Topic and at specialty retail shops throughout the world. With distribution of her art and inspired products reaching as far as Australia, the United Kingdom and Japan, Jessica has truly become a world-renown artist.
She is perhaps most celebrated for her ability to capture the haunting and often mysterious beauty of goddesses and faeries from mythology. Each of her visions brought to life on paper have a personality of their own, and often evoke strong feelings in those who view them. Some of her faeries are elegant, sweet and wistful, while others are defiant, dark and powerful. Barbara Moore (Northern California) has studied and read tarot since the early 1990s. She wrote the bestselling Tarot for Beginners and more than a dozen other books, and she has contributed to many bestselling tarot kits, including Mystical Manga Tarot and Shadowscapes Tarot. Barbara also works with clients and leads retreats and workshops all over the world.
I think that this book is some of Moore's finest work. Making best use of the deck and book is an act of personal empowerment.--Aeclectic Tarot
To sum up, this is a nicely-presented, interesting and thoughtful oracle deck.--Brian Stevenson, Tarot Association for the British Isles
This deck and book set is perfect for one-card daily readings. This would be an excellent first deck...and also makes a perfect gift for the faerie lovers.
True to my hopes, these ladies teamed up to make a lovely divinitory kit.--The Diva Digest
