The Herbal Healing Deck is a project created by my myself and my best friend, writer and herbalist Sarah Baldwin. The concept was conceived by Sarah, and she ever so graciously invited me along for the ride. To date, this is one of the most enjoyable projects I've worked on, as the venture relates to many of my own personal interests. I loved all aspects of the creative process, which included working with the plant spirits in meditation, to many late night talks with Sarah spent exploring her vision.

Below you'll find a sampling of all the visual work I created for the Herbal Healing Deck. The illustrations and designs were created using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
