Hi there

My name is Emily and this is my dedicated space for documenting my journey with creative living. It is my hope, that I can inspire those of you who visit, read and look through this space to find the curiosity to follow your own inner voice, seek out and do the thing that makes you go “this is what life’s all about.”

Benzaiten // The Ace of Cups

Benzaiten // The Ace of Cups

The Ace of Cups (Love - the start of love, inspired by creativity, nurtured by fruitfulness and happy times) depicted as Benzaiten, Japanese sea goddess of love, beauty, eloquence and music.

I had a lot of fun painting this and also enjoyed the challenge of painting an Asian character, as the vast majority of my paintings are Caucasian and for a while now I’ve been wanting to paint more diversely.

I loved creating her dress with some beautiful iridescent watercolours and inks I have. Also, the Cups are often associated with water so I have mostly picked sea/ water goddesses for the suit.
