"I’m struck by the sweetness of the art work on this deck, the thoughtfulness in the card meanings, and I’m loving that it’s square in shape. I also feel like my daughter would totally dig this oracle deck! (She’s 12 & pulls cards too!) Thank you, Kathy!" ~ Jen Berlingo, Art Sorceress, Art Therapist, LPC, ATR (Elfin Ally Oracle Deck)

“You do a great job of connecting the community. Thank you for that!” ~ Kim LaFleur, Temecula


“My daughter opened the Elfin Ally Deck first and loves it so much she claimed it for her own!” ~ Rommy & Rose Driks

"This is a really cool expression of the connection between the seen and unseen. If you like fae work then you will definitely be drawn to this." ~ Ethony, Tarot reader, author, founder of Tarot Readers Academy

“I love your vision and sharing your work with our readers is a genuine privilege.” ~ Anne Newkirk Niven, Publisher, Sage Woman Magazine and Witches & Pagans Magazine


"Kathy Crabbe's Elfin Ally Oracle Deck is a joy to work with. Kathy's artwork is beautiful and using this deck is like having a chat with a trusted friend. The messages are uplifting and heartfelt but they do look at both sides of the coin, giving the reader some tough love when required. This deck would be a helpful ally for anyone who resonates with the elementals, faery and earth energy, the animal kingdom and the divine feminine." ~ Victoria 'Vix' Maxwell, Soul Reader, Business Mentor + Author

I love the energy and the whimsy of this deck… a wonderful “meditation of the day” or “last words of advice for any reading”. The cards, protected with a UV coating, are beautiful re­productions of Kathy’s soothing, reassuring, and whimsical watercolour paintings.” ~ Cartomancer Magazine Review (Spring 2019) by Mary Moroska, Senior Reader/Mentor, American Tarot Association

“You are such an inspiration. I love your smile, your creativity, and how you have kept your inner children alive and flourishing! I found my chalks last night. I found my big sketch pad that I haven't touched in decades. I do not know what will come out but I am letting the colors flow.” ~ Ronni Eloff, Super-Connector, Spiritualist, Feminist, Advocate for Diversity&Inclusion, Coach, Conscious Marketing

“I pull cards in the morning and this deck has been a really good friend giving me a nudge in a specific direction.” ~ Steven Bright, Tarot Creator, Author, UK

Spirit Animal Whale for Angela

I have to say...when I saw this I FELL IN LOVE...I couldn't stop smiling. Your painting/drawing brought me to tears, as you literally have portrayed the whale smiling, and it reminds me of my deep memory and love of their species. ~ Angela DePriest, Freelance Photographer, Oregon Coast

Kristine Woll

I received the Bear print package...amazing work of art. So exciting! The art, design and colors are fantastic. Will treasure it! Definitely stirs creativity inside of myself that's been dormant for a bit. It makes the bear come alive, almost like a dancing bear. Thanks again. With much gratitude and blessings. Big Bear Hugzzzz. p.s. Really appreciate the beautiful card also. ~ Kristine Sauer, Atlanta, Georgia.

I love it! I am gifting it to my daughter for Christmas. It reminds me of her. I think "Solace" will remind her of our healing time together. Thank you! ~ Julia Ehret, Joshua Tree (Spirit Animal Painting)

Kingfisher Magick Custom Portrait

I was gifted with a Spirit Animal portrait of myself by Kathy...Let me say, she really got my spirit animal and poem down perfectly. The whole feel of the experience brought me to tears and even others, that I have shown it to, have also been blown away by how in tune she is...thank you SO MUCH! ~ Lori, Temecula, California

Thank you, thank you for my moon goddess and owl birthday gift...I love it, it is so precious to me...xo. ~ Krista Kirkwood, Laguna Niguel, California

Oh, and my mum! She has begun work in earnest on her dystopian novel, writing every single day and really enjoying it. We credit your Lefty Oracle Deck at least in part for helping to shake her out of her decades-long writer's rut, so thank you!" ~ Rosemary & Mum

It's beautiful! Beyond words Kathy. You pictured my essence, not only how I see myself, but my journey this year as daughter of Sea Goddesses and the spirits of the sea. I will have this framed for my room to remind me to trust the journey, Spirit is always there. Thank you so much! ~ Rhonda Susini, Arizona

Your lefty oracle cards are my new guides and guards at the same time. ~ Karin

Everything is just beautiful...And the colors are yummy! Yummy! ~ Francesca De Grandis, Shamanic Mentor, Founder of the Third Road School, Best-selling author of Be a Goddess!

Suzy's Owl Magick painting framed

We finally hung this beautiful art print from Kathy Crabbe today. I love her animal spirit series. Ever since I was little the moon has been special to me. I would call the moon my sister moon. She was only mine and not my sisters! I’ve found owls to be very special too. I keep owl stuffed animals in my car to keep me company and look out for me while I drive. I hung this piece in my bedroom so that my sister moon and my sweet owl friend could look over me while I sleep and to be near by to chat if I have a hard time sleeping. Please check out Kathy Crabbe's art if you feel a connection to our animal friends. I think you’ll find a piece that really speaks to you. ~ Suzy Fyfe, Scientist, Boston, MA

You must travel to some secret place when you create them. ~ Jennice Hyden, Acupuncturist, Seattle

Custom Portrait of Jen and Fox

I couldn't wait to discover what my spirit animal was. What a lovely surprise to see the fun and playful fox and I together. I chuckled when I noticed how Kathy cleverly painted my red hair by wrapping the fox's tail around my head. ~ Jen, Montreal, Canada

I get totally lost (in an inspirational way) when looking at these. The images have a sense of quirky fun and the colors are so bright, mesmerising and playful, I seem to find another little detail in them each time I look. Your words that accompany them in the eClass are also inspiring and add more depth to the cards and food for thought. Overall they inspire me to want to express myself just as eloquently and fearlessly. ~ Michelle Buckley, Art Therapist, Australia

Juicy Alive! Your Leftys make me feel like I’m not alone. They restore something in me…make me feel sane again. ~ Tangerine Bolen

So, I've been in this major creative funk as of late~ after roaming around the internet I was inspired by Kathy Crabbe and her use of her non dominant hand Lefty Drawings. I sat down and gave it a try myself and wow! I never realized I could draw with my left hand too!!! Thanks new friend for helping me out of that slump ~ hugs. ~ Janene Christman

The leftys are like a breath of fresh air. When I got bogged down in my writing they helped me feel free and playful. They loosened me up and got me creating again. ~ Andrea, Novelist

Zen-like ~ Mary Fleener, Cartoonist

They tickle your mind ~ Diane DeBaun, Ceramicist

My realtor went crazy and practically tried to take them all! ~ Kay Ferrell, Mother of Will

I like the simplicity of the Lefty Oracle Deck…drawings from the heart. I don’t think they would be as hard to feel out as Tarot. ~ Tana Musser, Domestic Goddess

They are and aren't cartoons ~ Paul Madonna, Artist, Author, Comics Editor

There is something that is sexual and not sexual all at the same time. It feels very edgy ~ Lisa Kelly, Lawyer & Director of Education, UAW, Toronto

Delicious...It was a true delight :) Thank you for being on the show, we look forward to catching up with you in the future. ~ Susun Weed, Herbalist and Founder of the Wise Woman Tradition

They’re so delicate, succinct, playful, refreshing. ~ Susan Mrosek, Pondering Pool Cards, Artist, Author

Beauty, colorful, pretty, delicate, Murano glass come to life almost too beautiful to touch…I fall in love with the Klimt-inspired drawing…I am charmed. An aging art snob with a guerilla aesthetic. I flip through card after card and start scheming ways to steal K. Crabbe’s work. Beg her to keep drawing! ~ Andree LaChapelle, Broken Pencil Magazine

I think I know all these people! ~ Susan Ruyle, Dawn Magazine Editor

Ah, what a treasure you are and so very talented! ~ Bette Lee Herbinson, Gourd Artist

Your paintings are inspiring and it’s been so healing for me to be with my lefty’s. ~ Christine, BoneRootHerb

"Fresh and unpretentious" ~ Denise, Pussy Cat Magazine, Editor

“All the wisdom you need is right there in you and the cards (images) spark your attention to go within where all the good stuff happens.” ~ Rebecca Janes, Spiritual Director

"My dear friend Kathy Crabbe is a Canadian artist living in the desert of Southern California. Her work ranges from the whimsical to the contemporary/abstract. Kathy's art is a group of off-beat and often profound characters drawn by her non-dominant left hand. This artwork asks us to remember the quirkiness of life, the nerds, the wallflowers, the pranksters and the soul-keepers. They are irreverent reminders that we should rail against homogenization, and that uniqueness, awkwardness and outsiderness are quite often the places where wisdom can be found" ~ Tangerine Bolen, Revolution Truth, Executive Director

“I know your artwork is essential to my creative process so cannot wait to get it all hung on the walls for inspiration.  I can feel that they will make the room come alive!!!” ~ Victoria Abrams, San Diego

“Kathy was so right-on with my spirit and path. I would highly encourage anyone to allow her to create for you....very soulful.” ~ Rhonda Clingan Susini, Arizona


 "This could be an excellent tool for working with Inner Child healing.

Spiritual guides and guided messages shouldn’t always be easy but they should be supportive, and that’s something I’ve always found with this deck.

“Kathy put her heart and soul in this deck, as well as its accompanying book. So they will take good care of you. I don’t say that lightly. I’ve been a professional psychic for over three decades, have created a divination system myself, and strive toward the highest standards in my work, so I recommend someone else’s work only if it’s wonderful.” ~ Francesca De Grandis, Shamanic Mentor, Founder of the Third Road School, Best-selling author of Be a Goddess!

This deck is fun. It doesn’t take itself too seriously but also doesn’t forget the seriousness that can hover around different topics and issues. Personally, I believe that when we are light of heart, we heal faster. We are able to hear messages and guidance easier because we’re open to receive. And The Lefty Oracle doesn’t let you forget how important that is."
~ Jess Carlson, Sacred Wild Witchery
