Emma Lloyd - The Lovers
The Lovers: The Lovers represents—amongst other things—union, relationships, and choices. I was inspired to explore themes of duality and balance, eventually intertwining the characters in a shape reminiscent of the Yin/ Yang symbol. The characters themselves personify feminine and masculine energies, with symbolism from the RWS deck relocated from the cosmos to the corporeal, shifting the loci of power from the divine to the individual.
Bio: Emma lives close to the sea in Wales, with her partner and two badly-behaved cats. She has studied Tarot for over twenty years and is currently researching and experimenting with ways to use the cards to support coping strategies for people living with chronic mental illness. Emma writes about mental health at www.emmalloyd.co but you're most likely to find her hanging out on Instagram (instagram.com/emmalloyd.co).
