Margaux Jones (AKA MJ) is an award-winning Seattle-based artist, writer, mother, and lover of all things magical - especially crows. Nature and its creatures are a familiar theme in MJ's work, however having grown up south of Boston her collages are heavily influenced by the energy of the city. Her work often merges the two worlds. Her path into the world of Tarot was a beautiful accident that came out of a difficult time in her life. The process of creating the Crow Tarot helped her discover her own wings, though at the time she didn't realize how life-changing the project would become. She simply fell in love with the process, the messages and the feeling each card evoked.

The Crow Tarot, MJ's first published deck, has achieved a significant following and recognition with crow lovers and the tarot community including winning the 2019 CARTA award for Best Tarot Deck and Best Illustrator of a Tarot Deck. 

When MJ is not making art or writing she is spending time with her daughter, playing in nature, practicing magic, and finding new sources of inspiration.

Is your work AI Generated? 

How do I make my art? One layer at a time! It’s not AI generated. I use photoshop and a Wacom tablet to draw and construct each piece. Doing my artwork this way feels very similar to working with physical supplies- I have to say that the Wacom tablet was the best investment I have made for my artwork. It mimics so well using different brushes different mediums. It’s kind of astounding. I am still drawing as I would If I was drawing on a piece of paper. The only difference is I’m drawing on a tablet I’m filling in -color where maybe I would brush paint, but I’m just doing it on a tablet.
Creating my work digitally allows me to edit and change up a piece without destroying it or starting over from scratch. There’s no waste of materials-It’s nice when you have a particular element that you want in a piece to not have it ruined by something else that may have been a mistake, instead I can just click delete and move on!
