Meet Jill Sutherland and Anne Staveley of Wheel of Fortune Tarot Project in Topanga Canyon

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jill Sutherland and Anne Staveley.

After many years of potent collaboration, Jill and Anne hatched the idea of a photo-series based on the Major Arcana of the Tarot.

Their shared understanding of the archetypal power of the cards led them to collaborate with a Tarot expert and a cast of extraordinary women. After months of intense work, 22 final pieces were created, one for each card.

Jill and Anne wanted to find a way to exhibit the series in a unique way that embodied the magical power of a Tarot reading. The circle of doors became a perfect way to present the photos as an interactive divination experience.

The Wheel of Fortune Tarot Project received a Burning Man Honorarium Grant. The premiere at Burning Man 2014 was an unforgettable experience that made it clear the journey of the Wheel was just beginning.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
We overcome obstacles by looking at them as opportunities for growth….

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Wheel of Fortune Tarot Project – what should we know?
We are known for creating photographs and interactive art that inspire conscious conversation. We are radically ourselves and this is shown in all aspects of our work. We are most proud of the Wheel of Fortune Tarot Project and the profound effect it has had on ourselves and the hundreds of thousands of people that have come in contact with it. It continues to gain power and momentum as we tour the installation and develop the full minor arcana deck.

In addition to the WOF, Staveley & Sutherland LLC have a photographic arts empire which includes:

Photo Murals – www.livinlargephoto.com
Wedding Photos – www.foreverhooked.com
Artist Interviews – www.voices-of-art.com
Anne Staveley – www.AnneStaveley.com
Jill Sutherland – www.JillSutherandPhoto.com

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
Risking it all by knowing our fortune and realizing its always our turn. Seeing the abundance in our lives and wanting to share profound exchanges in conscious conversation and imagery that inspires.

Teamwork and good communication are key to our success as collaborators and partners in crime. We also understand that the collective can be more powerful than the individual alone…
