Kathy Crabbe cottaging

I can't write a bio worth diddly but I sure as heck try! (daily) What I do do is paint daily and I paint in series until the passion leaves me and I move onto another series. Right now the Spirit Animals have me in their grip...and the elves and fairies. I discovered the paper that flamed this project when visiting my home town of Kingston, Ontario, Canada. It was made in Montreal and thus triply special to me (I was conceived there which I didn't find out until I was in my 20's...i'd been adopted at birth). And so I took this pad of paper to my cottage near Kingston and I painted outside in the forest and what came through was a cat woman. I launched this website in September of 2017 because the Spirit Animals are ready now to magic you.

About Kathy

Summers are spent in the forest on a lake in Ontario, Canada in a hand built cottage close to where she was born. Kathy finds inspiration in daily painting, country living, her 4 legged furry friends and her spiritual practice rooted in Celtic Faerie Shamanism.

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 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.
