kathy-crabbe-at-santa-rosa-plateau

I resonate deeply with goddess herstory; the hidden, the suppressed, the unspoken. As an adoptee I experienced the trauma of losing my mother before she could see me or hold me and the gift of finding another. Through my work as an artist, teacher, writer and soul guide I seek to remember, to heal, make whole and holy.

I’m also sort of ambidextrous.

In 2000 I switched to my left hand after becoming bored with my right which led to the creation of the Lefty Oracle and other decks that I’ve shared in over one thousand soul readings to awaken intuition and creativity, in moon circles and in moon guided classes and books channeling the divine feminine.

Previously I shared my work as LULU DESIGN. ‘LuLu’ is a cartoon character, altar ego I created in design school who helped express and heal my inner child. After graduating I moved to Laguna Beach from Canada and pursued silk painting, exhibiting my work at the Sawdust Art Festival for eight years.

I currently live and work in a hand built home in elfin forest wine country Temecula, California and soon, in the Thousand Islands, Canada with my architect husband Mark and our two dogs.

I found my birth family when I was 27. It turns out I’m from a long line of well known Canadian artists; including my grandfather, James Simpkins, creator of Jasper the Bear.

“Deeper always deeper, darker ever darker.” We hold within us a deep body memory of who we are. We are so much more than what our patriarchal society dictates, especially as women. We are faerie, goddess, trickster, spirit animal, wise woman, witch. Let us never forget. We are not a label, a corporate brand, a commodity, lesser than. We are mystery, magic, light and dark and that still, quiet place in between where poetry grows.

They took away my history and i found my herstory
