What is this WILD CARD?
WILD CARD is an uplifting guided step-by-step journey to create a resource 'deck' for insight into your OWN internal information. What do we mean by information? Your stories, symbols, archetypes, codes, patterns, cultural signs, imprints, totems, animals, sacred geometry, simply cool shapes, and self-invented glyphs and gifs.
What will we be doing?
WILD CARD is an invitation to create 44 custom hand-illustrated cards creating with Intentional Creativity and intuitive musing. Work with watercolor paper, paint, and ink. The 'content' within the cards is directly connected to the messages you carry within you. What do we mean by within you? Within your own mind, heart, body, field, and life story is a rich and complex library of "information" that belongs to YOU and can come through if you give your Muse the proper libations and flirtations. Each card will have two sides, so you will end up with 88 total images.
What is the big why?
WILD CARD is a call to awakening through pleasure, play, and pondering. We will work with 44 inquiries as catalyzing probes into your relationships, situations, beliefs, patterns, and mythologies to discover the juicy stuff, the both/and, the shadow/light, critic/muse. Basically, we are gonna get the unconscious conscious enough to translate it from the invisible to the visible. These images and their associated language and meanings will bring you PROFOUND insight since you are the one who made them.
What about drawing?
WILD CARD will show you all the basic drawings you need for the experience. You do not need prior experience, this is not about skill. That said we will teach basic gesture drawing and rendering and reducing ideas to glyphs. As well as show you how to develop your own personal made-up symbols. You may think you can't draw a bird, pomegranate, or teapot, but you will surprise yourself. That is part of the FUN! Taking a risk!
What is the theme?
WILD CARD will invite you to find your own theme through experimentation and observation. To design and name your deck and the relationship or meanings between the cards will arise naturally in the process. The theme is yours to design. That said, this isn't about fortune-telling, rather, it is about storytelling and using your own guidance system as the resource. You don't have to already use oracle cards or know Tarot or anything of the sort. All spiritual traditions and cultures are welcome. Also, we feel that your deck might be fun to use with others but only you know that. Chances are you will be proud and want to share them with others!
What can I use it for?
WILD CARD will offer you an awe-inspiring personal deck from which to draw insight, do personal readings, grow to understand your relationship with yourself, the frameworks you hold, and deepen your relationship with your Muse. This is a GREAT getting to know yourself tool while developing drawing and thinking skills.
Who is the Wild Card?
WILD CARD invites you to make this meaningful for where you are in your life. Who is the wild card, well, YOU ARE! You can make this creative experience mean whatever it needs to mean for you. A healing journey. A date with the muse. A voyage to your inner world. A fun way to learn drawing. A distraction from the other mundane stuff swirling around you. Wild card energy brings in the unpredictable, the unexpected, and the element of surprise!
And last but not least, when we are done with our labors we will mount a museum show of the 'best of' Wild Card images and call supper club parties all around the world. Because you know what? We need to play together and discover the gifts of the wild cards within us!

I am Shiloh Sophia. I am an edge-walker so even if I was there, you might not have seen me. For example, in the above photo, I am wearing a ship on my head with gladiolas coming out. When I walk down the street of San Francisco, New York, or Paris they don't even notice me. I am almost invisible. But since you are reading this very page it means something caught your eye. Perhaps my dazzling smile or my leopard print boots? My giant paintbrushes? Well, whatever it is you are here now. And if you ever wanted to have access to your own inner world in a wacky wonder-filled way, you came to the right place. You will find plenty of fellow wild cards here amongst the many muses of Musea.
That just sounds cool.
"Hey what are you doing this summer?
"Oh nothing much, just working on my own personal oracle deck while sipping a fancy drink by the pool"
"What is an oracle deck?"
"Well, it is this super cool thing where you ask questions and find answers yourself instead of always seeking outside yourself for the answers. Plus I am making them with hundreds of other cool creatives throughout the world."
"Wow. I wanna come! Show me!"
"Well come on then and let's begin by having tea with the muse, she is a wild card that one!"
Intentional Creativity means to create with love and mindfulness. It is super-duper simple and super-duper profound. We will work step by step to build our base of images. YET the deepest part is the inquiry of HOW you arrive at the images with your information and the translations. That part is top-secret and you have to join the WILD CARD event to gain access to that material. Just ask your Muse, she knows how it goes.
Creating on a consistent basis rewires your brain chemistry. Creating consistently with intention rewires not only your brain but your heart.
SHILOH SOPHIA | MUSEA FOUNDER
"Painting is self-therapy, rewriting my story, healing old wounds, discovering inner archetypes, keeping my sanity during these wild times, opening up to divine guidance, listening to my soul’s whispers, bathing in silence and colors, active self-love, getting into flow and more."
"Each encounter with Shiloh Sophia is an infusion of courage that brings me one step further along the road to authentically “knowing” who I am and being willing to share that with others….."
"I was once very creative and never thought those divine doors would open for me again, then along came Shiloh Sophia, she is showing me the way back to the path as it unfolds day by day. I feel so blessed to have found her. Working with her is joyful and powerful on many levels. "
“I don't know about ya'll but I am ready for a bit of wild play. Yes, a distraction but something deep as well. Can we have a good time and heal? You bet we can. Intentional Creativity is so cathartic, and you can enter into an enhanced flow state within just a few minutes.
