About Kathy

I'm a soul reader, professional artist, creator of the Lefty Oracle deck, teacher of the eClass, Awaken Your Divine Feminine Soul at the Wise Woman University and author of several books including the Goddess Zodiac Playbook and Moon Musings. I live with my two dogs, Abby & Djinn Djinn and my architect husband in homes we've built ourselves surrounded by the desert and forest wilderness of Temecula, California and the 1000 Islands in Canada.

My Journey

I've been in love with drawing and color since age 2. Just ask my mom who kept all my sketchbooks filled with beauty contests, shoes, games, magazines, catalogs and newspapers ('Dog-a-Ville Daily News' anyone?) At age thirteen I told my grandfather I planned to 'live creatively' and so I have as a professional artist since 1992.

In Design School in Kingston, Ontario I created 'LuLu', my alter ego whilst my best friend was 'Scarlett'. LuLu, Hermes the cat and friends became cartoons that lulled me to sleep during noisy times at college.

Soon after I moved to Laguna Beach with my husband-to-be and I kept my business name, 'LuLu Design' and got into the Sawdust Art Festival where for 7 years I painted and sold my LuLu in Laguna Series of clothing and paintings on silk created with silk dyes and gutta resist.

I channeled Mama Moon for one month as she moved through each zodiac sign during which I painted, researched goddess myths, and wrote poetry that later became the Zodiac Goddess Playbook, an oracle deck, and the basis for my eClass, Awaken Your Divine Feminine Soul that I teach at the Wise Woman University.

Later we moved to Temecula, California (inland from the beach) where I danced with the local fairies and painted my Fairy Herbal Cat Series that turned into an 80 card oracle deck.

One day I grew bored with my dominant right hand and began drawing exclusively with my non-dominant left hand and 17 years later published the Lefty Oracle Deck and 92 page Guidebook.

During another tough patch in my life, art once again saved the day. I literally RAN for my silks and acrylics; grabbing a large 5 foot bolt of silk and tearing 4 foot squares from it which later became my Divine Feminine Series of abstracts and symbols filled with all the healing, passion and fire I could muster.

Around age forty I became a professional Soul Reader because fate forced me to share all my mystical know-how with others rather than keep it to myself. I facilitated Moon Circles in California and Canada and currently offer soul readings using the 4 oracle decks I've created from my artwork..

I continue to paint in series inspired by my shamanic practice, nature, and my love of animals; both domestic and wild and you will find these paintings here: Spirit Animal Series, Paintings on Wood and Goddess/Witchy paintings.

Currently I'm painting and collaging Spirit Guides and strange, alien-esque beings. You can find my artwork at these fine shops and online. I also co-host public Arts Mixers for creatives in Temecula along with Melody De Los Cobos as well as leading private Moon Circles, and I continue to teach and offer astrological services and soul readings online.

My Journey into the Goddess Womb Cave

The journey below was filmed in Sage, California near my home. I've played classical flute since high school but later discovered the Native American flute and was hooked; it's such a magical instrument. Playing it helps me call upon my spirit animal, the owl. I don't usually give soul readings in a cave as depicted below, but it's a great place to celebrate the seasonal festivals and to cool down in the summer when it tops a 100 degrees outside.
