Hi! I'm Claire and I own the design studio known as Black and the Moon. It is here where I design tarot and oracle decks for spiritual women.
I started Black and the Moon in 2011 because I felt there was a lack of stylish and unique decks on the market, and I wanted my readings to be enhanced by the artwork that I love. I knew if I was feeling this way, other people must be to!
My first project was the Antique Anatomy Tarot, which was completed in 2013, and it quickly became a staple in the indie market (now mass-market by Quarto). This love for creating has led me to design many more oracle decks such as the Arcana of Astrology - the first astrology based deck on the market, the Compendium of Constellations, The Oracle of Oddities, and my newest creation Memento Mori.
Throughout this journey I have been lucky enough to have my work be featured in many publications like FLARE magazine, American Express, BT Toronto, Refinery29, Urban Outfitters, and Candis UK.
In 2016 I was the recipient of the Etsy Canada Award for the Paper and Illustration category, which was a huge honour as I had been a shopper there for years!
Going forward, I strive to provide you the designs and products you love, and continue being a game changer in the world of tarot.
