Welcome to the official cyber home of visionary oracle and tarot author and artist, Ravynne Phelan a.k.a. Michele-lee Phelan. Within the pages of this website you will find the art and thoughts of a divine soul who is living and becoming the human she is meant to be. Sometimes both ugly and beautiful, every word and brushstroke are an expression of the Divine, magic, and human experience.
WHAT'S ON THE EASEL?
Ravynne is currently working on several new decks. The first is an oracle deck that will be titled Seeker Oracle. It will be a sister deck to Messenger Oracle, and due to their similarities, they will be formatted the same manner so that they can be used together. Messenger Oracle has also been revised. The artwork has been freshened up, the card design changed, and five new cards added. The new edition of Messenger will be released late this year or early next, while Seeker will come out not long after. The two decks will have matching designs that will allow them to be mixed together to create a custom deck.
The second deck she working on and hopes to complete this year is a very simple symbol-based dragon energy deck that came to her in an instant download in 2018. She is also working on a Lenormand deck, and finally, a dragon-themed oracle deck. Both will be her focus for 2021.
Unfortunately, COVID-19 has slowed her progress. Due to Ravynne not being eligible for any of the COVID-19 support payments, she has been forced to shift her focus to commissions so that she can remain solvent. However, her hope is to return to work on her projects in August so that both "Seeker" Oracle and the symbol-based deck are off to the publishers before the end of the year.
Due to its size and complexity, the dragon-themed oracle is a long-term project that may take Ravynne several more years to complete. At present, all of the cards have been decided upon and the majority of drawings completed. A number of artworks have been completed, but there are many more still to be painted.
It takes a great deal of time to both illustrate and write each deck, and the financial investment required is quite large. Ravynne is self-employed which means she needs to earn enough to cover the time she spends on her publishing projects. Creating her oracle decks is not only her passion, but the source of her livelihood. The more she earns from her art, the more time she can spend working on the next deck - tools for developing self-awareness and self-empowerment that she creates for you because she wants nothing more than for you to make empowered choices that create a reality of your design.

"Ravynne is an artist of power, intelligence, and imagination. She is an artist-alchemist who deeply believes in her subject matter, and whose sacred task is to reconnect us all with visions of the divine, in its myriad forms of tree, deity, dryad, or dragon. Every work has a soul, every brushstroke returns magick to our modern world. To gaze upon her creations is to sit with the greatest of teachers; one whose work combines beauty and meaning, the cosmos and the underworld, male and female, and the seen and unseen worlds." - Lucy Cavendish - author
