10 Questions for Tarotist Joanna Ash

10 Questions for Tarotist Robyn Tisch Hollister


What’s your favorite breakfast food? Tacos. Seriously, I can and will eat soft tacos any time of day.

Book you’d like to give everyone (or wish they would read)? The Flora Segunda series by Ysabeau Wilce. Young adult novels that are truly enchanting.

What makes you laugh? My Mother is hilarious. Sometimes we get together and laugh so hard at the stupidest stuff, that is physically hurts.

Song that never gets old: "Southern Cross" by Crosby Stills and Nash makes me smile every time I hear it.

Drink of choice: Tea. Earl Grey. Hot. Decaffeinated.

Would you rather be hot or cold? Heat treats me better than cold. When I'm cold, everything aches.

Mountain, beach, desert, or forest? That's a tough choice! I will have to go with Forest. Especially pine forests, or old oak forests. They instantly relax and inspire me.

Favorite colors? Burgundy Wine, Goldenrod, Teal

Best movie line:For my will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom is as great...” Sarah from Labyrinth.

Last thing you splurged on? I used to never wear make-up, but lately I have indulged, because it just makes me look more like me! Recently I bought a whole batch of new make-up, and felt slightly guilty...but it was all on sale!

Bonus Question: If you weren't an artist, what would be your dream job? I'm a bit obsessed with theme parks, so I would love to be a designer of theme park attractions.

Robyn Tisch Hollister is a folk artist, and fortune teller who has been reading tarot and other oracles professionally since she was 13. When she is not engaged in helping people find their truth, she is wandering about the country with her spouse, performing at Renaissance Festivals as a puppeteer, merchant and Snake Oil salesman. Robyn is the creator of the All Hallows Tarot, the Minute Deck, the Crowstone Oracle, and a whole bunch of other divinatory tools. She has at least 9 unfinished projects at any given time.

She likes to write bios because it forces her to look at herself through someones else's eyes for a change, and it's not that often she gets to refer to herself in the third person.

Her Etsy shop, where she sells her a lot of her art, is at WonderCaravan.

Note from Janet: Robyn and her husband, Bob, have experienced some financial difficulty after Bob's hospital stay for congestive heart failure. Robyn and Bob make most of their income from live performances and Renaissance Faires, so this recent health crisis has put them in a bit of a bind. Please support them on their GoFundMe site at this link (I did). Thank you!
