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.”

Isis // The High Priestess

Isis // The High Priestess

The High Priestess (A secret is about to be revealed - intuitive wisdom) depicted as Egyptian goddess Isis. It was quite easy to research this role, as in the book I have been referring to for the tarot designs, the High Priestess is depicted wearing the horned crown of Isis.

What was not easy, was actually creating this card! I’ve done a couple of Egyptian goddesses now and one thing I wanted to was ensure that the clothes and portraits were different to each other.

For some reason I really struggled with Isis - especially as in a lot of depictions she has falcon wings similar to how I painted Nephthys. I actually ended up drawing Isis five times and half painted her twice before the final painting.

The whole process was very frustrating and I came extremely close to quitting and leaving this one for another time. I even started another painting to try and boost my spirits a bit! I managed to push through and am happy with the final painting but it was a real struggle!
