John A. Rice is a lifelong artist, one of the few who specializes in oil pastels. His work has sold in more than 35 countries worldwide. He runs his art shop, J.A.R. Studio, NYC, out of his workspace in Astoria, NY. He is also an accomplished Tarot reader, having studied extensively with his mentor from Italy (where Tarot originated). He drew on this background to create his unique, popular MINDSCAPES Tarot deck.


It is John's mission...


To help people reclaim their own mystique and see themselves as the hero of their own story.


To foster healing, introspection, and creativity through otherworldly art — empowering the internal world so that we can enrich our outer world.


Press & Interviews

In this conversation with Rebecca Scolnick, we discuss creativity, spirituality, and navigating the multi-hyphenate artist’s life! (And horror movies! )

Thrilled to be in conversation with Tiffany Hopkins to discuss the connection between creativity/spirituality, channeled art, and my latest project Beyond Words, which saw me working with renowned mediums at the Spiritualist community Lily Dale to answer some of your deepest and most thought-provoking questions.

Join me and Nick Kepley, "Tarot anarchist" and host of the podcast In Search of Tarot, in conversation about the MINDSCAPES Tarot and about redefining mystic systems for our current world.

Check out this podcast interview I did with the lovely Julea Lam, where we discuss everything MINDSCAPES Tarot.
