Francesca Howard Artist

Colour, from the beginning, has been my wonder, quest and illuminant. Painting, both creating it and studying the history of it, is how I bring these intense feelings about colour into the external world. 

As an extension and further development of my connection to colour I created The Colour Potential Card Deck. The cards help navigate issues - from seemingly small everyday dilemmas, to the more devastating life events.

Inner Guidance Cards and Handbook

The Colour Potential Card Deck, devised and written by Francesca Howard

I created these cards for everyday use. They are a powerful reminder of the positive qualities we all have within us which can become dimmed with life's challenges. The deck comprises 55 cards, using 17 colours. 

The cards are designed to provide direction when trying to resolve a recurring issue, when facing a challenging situation or when you want to bring a bit more fun and incentive into your life. Each card contains a circle of colour and a written word, a positive power, which aligns with that colour. There are no 'negative' cards in the deck.

Colour transmits messages far more rapidly than words. The pairing of a colour with the written word doubles the impact of each card, giving two different perspectives on the issue presented. A comprehensive 80-page handbook accompanies and explains the cards.
