Future Ancestor Guidebook
Alexa Villanueva is a Filipino-American artist and tarot reader from the Pacific Northwest, for whom art has always played a huge role.
After leaving her full-time career in Interior Architecture, she focused on her visual art practice and serving others through reading tarot, taking advantage of her background in Interior Architecture to consider how to think about space and human experience. Yet, she felt in her heart that ceramics, illustrations, and tarot were all part of a larger purpose that she needed to explore and share. And she hasn’t looked back.
It was not until 2020 when these passions came together with intention and magic, and the Future Ancestor Tarot Deck was born: a 78-card tarot deck that I lovingly painted, collaged, and self published. These cards began as a seed, and I’m ready to explore larger installations and paintings with what it means to be a Future Ancestor and an intentional care-taker of the Earth.
