The Wild Green Chagallian Tarot is the very latest manifestation of a fascination with tarot that that began with The Mystic Rubaiyat and deepened with The Pen Tarot, both of which may be seen by clicking on the links in the sidebar.
The paintings of Marc Chagall and the plants we find growing wild in the woods and fields, by streams and rivers, on waste land and grass verges, as well as turning up as often unwelcome visitors in our parks and gardens, may seem an odd combination to take as the staring point for a tarot.
I do hope The Wild Green Chagallian Tarot proves an inspiration, as Chagall’s love, wife and muse Bella was to him. The images for The Wild Green Chagallian Tarot were created using the whimsical figures of Marc Chagall as inspiration. The images are professionally printed on 350gsm silk card, 9cm x 14cm, gloss laminated with a reversable pattern of leaves on the backs, and are borderless with rounded corners. The 50 page booklet that accompanies each set has also been professionally printed, and is intended as a guide for those interested in learning a little about the precious wild green plants that grow all around us (and are so often ignored or despised as despoilers of our parks and gardens), as well as showing how the images and wild green things link to the traditional card meanings. Returning overland to Sussex via India, Afghanistan and Europe, a journey lasting six months, she resumed her study of art, etching, lithography and silk screen printing at the University of Brighton whilst exhibiting regularly both locally and in London and Birmingham. She was a member of the National Acrylic Painters Association and the Association of Sussex Artists for many years, and has exhibited with the Society of Women Artists and in various open exhibitions.
Her work is in private collections in America, Southern Africa and Great Britain, and her paintings have been published as limited edition fine art prints.


Penelope works in a variety of media including oil, acrylic, watercolour and pastel, as well as etching and silk screen. Most of her work is figurative, a continuing concern being to convey the brilliance, colour, luminosity and magic of light. In her other incarnation as Nell Grey she has published short stories, poetry and the odd review as well as three novels: Solitary Pleasures and the magical The Golden Web and its sequel, Three Magic Women. All artwork is copyrighted by the individual artists.Images may not be reproduced without the permission of the artist.
My only excuse is that both have been separate sources of inspiration to me for a long time – the work of Marc Chagall for the poetry in paint that I can never hope to equal, and wild green things for the precious resources contained within their cell walls and so easily overlooked. For Bella’s presence is somehow suggested in every painting created after they met, and for this reason she appears as the Muse in the extra card. There are 24 cards in each set - the 22 archetypes of the major arcana plus the title card, which is signed and numbered on the back underneath a poem the artist wrote about Marc and Bella many years ago. After studying at what was then Brighton Polytechnic, she lived and worked in Southern Africa, where she specialized in studies of tribal Africans and the indigenous wildlife, as well as teaching pottery.
She is drawn to locations and occasions rich in life in all its kaleidoscopic diversity and is fascinated by those places where myth and legend, magic and arcane knowledge cross and mingle.


One day her set of tarot trumps based on The Golden Web may be finished, or she may, yet again, be led astray on a completely different tarot adventure, as she was with both The Pen Tarot and The Wild Green Chagallian Tarot.
I’ve linked the tarot archetypes to the wild plants (nearly all of which I use myself) that seemed to me most similar in their characteristics, and in doing so fully realize that I’ve gone against previously created herbal tarots. Perhaps you’ll explore the life and work of Marc Chagall, or study, appreciate and use some of the precious wild plants often unnoticed and trodden underfoot – if you don’t already do so.
A sheet of the same hand-made paper sealed with a leaf sticker (these may vary) ensures that the cards are safely tucked in. This is her third set of meditation and tarot cards in what promises to be a lifelong journey, and an experiment with a more whimsical mood and style than usual. In addition to the twenty-two cards of the major arcana and the title card, there is one extra card - The Muse.
Interpret the card’s meaning however you will, but unlike the other wild plants chosen for The Wild Green Chagallian Tarot, hemlock is deadly poisonous and a small amount will kill.
