Karen Vogel

Karen Vogel is a renowned intuitive who is widely known as co-creator of the Motherpeace Tarot deck and as a tarot reader, teacher and writer as well as an extraordinary artist.

The worldwide success of the Motherpeace Deck (currently over 200,000 in print) afforded her the time to develop as an artist and sculptor of wood and stone as well as continue her exploration of the intermountain and far west. Karen’s creative voice expresses her deep sense of animation and spirit in nature.

Karen is a rogue scholar — known for her innovative thinking in the field of anthropology and natural history. She has a degree in anthropology and a background in women’s studies, art and shamanism. She grew up in New York City but fell in love with the wild places of the western North America as a teenager. She’s lived there ever since and explored many places in the intermountain and far west. She lives in rural west Sonoma County, California.

Karen’s art has appeared prominently in a number of well-known performances and public rituals in the Bay Area of California. She was the altar sculptor and designer for Jennifer Berezan’s concerts Praises and ReTurning to the Mother of Us All.
