Lefty Deck Reviews & Interviews
Today I have a fun review for you of an oracle deck that’s a little different, a little strange, and completely excellent...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. ~ Jess Carlson, SacredWildWitchery.com - Click here for the review.
This deck holds a very light and playful energy to it.. and I know you will love as much as I do! ~ Rachel Caringella, Oracle at TreeTalkerArt.com Read the review here.
The Origin of the Lefty Oracle Deck
The Leftys changed me.
I spent 5+ years painting the deck with my non dominant left hand. This recharged my batteries in new and healing ways.
It helped me slow down and trust myself.
When I paint Leftys, the lines lead me. I start with the head, and the name comes later.
I’ve given over 1000 intuitive soul readings with the deck and it works! I've shared the deck in moon circles, chapbooks, zines, writing groups, poetry readings, online classes, art shows, a red hat group, a performance art project, an interactive museum exhibit and onstage in Hollywood with Michelle Shocked for International Women’s Day.
I hope the Lefty Oracle Deck inspires YOU to make creative and intuitive breakthroughs in YOUR life.
The Leftys are delicious! ~ Susun Weed, The Voice of the Wise Woman Tradition
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
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 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
Juicy Alive! Your Leftys make me feel like I’m not alone. They restore something in me…make me feel sane again. ~ Tangerine Bolen, Revolution Truth
In the case of bilateral drawing, there is an assumption that because both hands are engaged that both hemispheres of the brain are stimulated…I believe bilateral drawing, guided by a helping professional, is helpful simply as a method of self-regulation. In particular, it can be introduced as a grounding technique because it is a novel, non-threatening yet embodied experience for most individuals…Making marks or gestures on paper with both hands simultaneously also creates an attention shift away from the distressing sensations in the body to a different, action-oriented and self-empowered focus. It capitalizes on the embodied, self-soothing experiences originally observed by Cane almost seven decades ago and takes advantage of the power of “drawing on both sides” to alter one’s own internal rhythms for self-regulation and well-being. ~ Cathy Malchiodi, PhD, Art Therapist
I’ve never seen anything like it…I laughed out loud.

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.

Overall they inspire me to want to express myself just as eloquently and fearlessly. ~ Michelle Buckley, Art Therapist, Australia
I absolutely love love love your Leftys! They are like illustrated words of kindness and inspiration. ~ Claudine, Occupational Therapist, Phoenix, AZ

“I think it's a very sweet-natured oracle deck. one that invites the shyest of inner children to come out and engage with their intuition.

"This is a fun loving deck. If I use it once, even for a few minutes, I get a nice big smile that will not go away. I was surprised by the simplicity of the drawings that was paired with messages that were short but deep and that were getting to the point (there is a list of mantras and then the PDF goes into a lot of depth about the relevance of each card). It a beautiful occasion to remember to smile and play and just enjoy life. Thank you, Kathy." ~ Ecaterina Gheorghe, Switzerland
“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
"Enchantingly graceful, whimsical, playful, witty, gorgeous, unique and sweet-spirited" ~ Esther Essinger, Artist, Author, Activist
Lefty Oracle Deck Art Opening @ Riverside Art Museum
In 2016 I exhibited all 52 original paintings from the deck at the Riverside Art Museum as part of the 52 Project; a 52 week experiment that involved creating every day.
I helped people understand that non dominant hand drawing could awaken their intuition and help them pursue their dreams from a deeper and more aware place.
All the Leftys are collaborative. They are not meant to hang on the wall or sit on the shelf. They deeply desire to engage people on deep levels using sacred play.
