Contribution to the Healing Community: Designer/Illustrator of the Rider Waite-Smith Deck.
Occultist Arthur Edward Waite commissioned artist Pamela Colman Smith (AKA "Pixie") to illustrate the 78 cards in the popular esoteric card deck best known today as the Rider-Waite Tarot. Her artwork is thought to possibly be inspired by the 15th century Sola Busca Tarot. Pixie attended the Pratt Institute of Art in Brooklyn in 1893 while in her teens. Pixie was also a published author and storyteller.
