To be perfectly honest, this project has given me more than I could’ve hoped for. Over the four years that it took to create, (avoidance, maybe?!?), I healed so many past traumas, many of which were beyond my own conscious awareness. I’m happy to say that I’m not the girl that started this project anymore.Continue reading “Inner Child Artist Oracle is prepared to go live! But does it do what I say it does?”
The deck started out small, and was meant for personal use only, but it transformed itself many times as I went along. It soon became huge and MESSY!!! And that is OK, as the process for creating it felt huge and messy. There was lots of scribbling and mistakes and I didn’t always like theContinue reading “How Inner Child Artist Oracle Came To Be: The Progression of the Process is Sticky Sometimes”
Coming to Kickstarter February 15, 2023!
This deck is a culmination of everything I’ve ever done in my entire life, from teaching elementary school art , to messing around with graphic design and websites, marketing and advertising, to storytelling and journaling, to card creation, etc.! I have had so many random opportunities to work in so many different fields, and IContinue reading “Inner Child Artist Oracle is Done, Diddly-Un!!!!”
I have to finish editing 22 stories in the guidebook for Inner Child Artist Oracle. The stories are from my inner child’s perspective, and some of them are not easy to write, and even harder to read. We all have our stories. So this is me, wearing my heart on my sleeve, as I’m sharingContinue reading “Dude, this is happening!”
I’m almost ready for Kickstarter! I had some healing to do… This has been the very best healing project ever. Check it out! This art was created using my non-dominant hand. The art is based off of projects I facilitated in my elementary art classroom. Each card has a real story from my life, retoldContinue reading “Inner Child Artist Oracle by CooptyLew”
I am back to work on my new Oracle deck! Coming to Kickstarter so soon!
Are you happy? Were you happy as a child? Do you know how to be truly happy? 🥰 Emotions are intrinsic, and must be created from within. Happiness is something you become. It can’t be found in other people, in relationships, in travel, in work, or in luxury belongings… Happiness is something that you mustContinue reading “Inner Child Artist: WIP!”
These are my drawings in response to the cards in my Inner Child Artist deck. It’s hard to say which I prefer: the initial imagery or the elicited imagery… Inner Child Artist was created over the many YEARS I spent teaching elementary art. Much of the imagery is from art projects that I facilitated andContinue reading “Inner Child Artist: The How’s and Why’s”
Join me as I show my new deck, INNER CHILD ARTIST, and show you how I use it to CONNECT WITH, CONVERSE WITH, and ultimately REPARENT my inner child!
I have been absent. And I have been absent in more than just my website… I have been absent in my life in general. I must admit that losing my father has been the worst thing that’s ever happened to me. It threw my life into a tailspin. A tailspin? A tailspin implies that everythingContinue reading “What in the actual fuck is going on?”
Flip-through of several tarot decks, including urban, practical magic, dust II onyx, and MORE!!!

A little over the top
Hey! But if you do like what I have to say, you can view my unboxings of Colliwog here and The Moon Deck here. Enjoy! They are “decklust” APPROVED! And for a giggle, see the one below! (I swear, I have no shame!)
Work is progressing on The Tarot Banksy! The guidebook is nearly complete and the order specifications are in the works! So exciting! Here is a sample of the artwork that I have created from using a spread and pulling cards. That is what I love to do most… Draw new Tarot imagery from spreads, ratherContinue reading “The Tarot Banksy Guidebook is Well UNDERWAY!!!”
Art by CooptyLew… YOURS TRULY! 💋
The Banksy Tarot was designed for me, and by me, because I wanted a deck with Banksy’s artwork and it was not available. After searching for quite some time, I decided to design one myself. It has taken a couple years to get this tarot to take physical form, but the design stage for theContinue reading “The Banksy Tarot is Ready for Print!”
I plan to have the deck completed for a test print by May 15, 2018. I will work on the LWB during the Kickstarter campaign. Excitement all around! 💋

Checkout the collection of cards I accumulated in the year 2017! Yeah, I know…
Recently, I have been creating artwork that is based on characters from Tarot cards. I am creating a deck of sorts. So far, I have embodied the Fool, the High(est) Priestess, the Moon (Control), the Page (Daughter) of Cups, The Magician, The Heirophant (Teacher), and the Universe. Also, I am drawing and paintingContinue reading “Artsy “Tarotisms””
