my name is Lupa! I stumbled across this forum while researching tarot designs (I'm creating my own deck, the Tarot of Bones, and I will post a separate thread in the appropriate subforum.) I ended up spending the next couple of hours browsing around, looking at pictures and coming to the realization that there are a LOT of tarot decks I had no idea existed! I'm not surprised, but I am pretty enthralled. I haven't the money or space to become a serious collector, and right now I only read with my Animal-Wise deck, but I've been enjoying living vicariously through the rest of you!
As for me? I'm a pagan artist and author living in Portland, OR; I've written several books on (non-indigenous) totemism and nature spirituality, and I create a variety of art from hides, bones and other natural materials. You can see more of my work at my primary website, http://www.thegreenwolf.com
I'll likely mostly lurk and admire the pretty things that are posted, but it's good to be here!
