The Presence of the Divine is the vibrant, light-filled color and beauty of the seen and unseen worlds of the Divine, brought to life on canvas through the visionary sight of Katherine Skaggs, intuitive artist and shamanic practitioner, as well as artist of the Mythical Goddess Tarot.

Angels, Goddesses, the Christ, the Buddha, the Shaman, all exist in the world of Katherine Skaggs, vibrant, alive and Divine Presences offering healing, guidance and beauty to all who partake. Stand in front of any painting and receive an infusion of light healing energy beyond the beauty your eyes see. Be reminded of the expansiveness of the Divine within every brush stroke, and within every breath you take as you breathe in each image. A must see experience.

Katherine began her first visionary, divine art paintings in the mid-1990s, inspired by the works of Susan Seddon Boulet and Alex Grey. It was a merging of Katherine’s spiritual life and her lifelong path as an artist and energy healer that unveiled her true purpose and love. In 2003, Mother Mary came to Katherine Skaggs, telling her to paint her presence and take her into the world to bring healing and the light of love to all who would gaze upon her. Since that time, many beings of light, of the Divine have inspired Katherine’s imagery on canvas, as well as her guidance as an intuitive, mystic artist, teacher and writer.

After a trip to Rome on a “Conversations with the Goddess” tour in 2006, Katherine came home with the message from mystic, crone, artisan Lydia Ruyle, that it is time for each of us to re-member to tell “Her-Story.” Immediately upon arriving in Fort Collins, Katherine contacted her dear soul sister, author Sage Holloway, who had told Katherine many years earlier (early 1990s) that they should create a Divine Feminine tarot deck. From 2006 to 2008, Katherine painted 78 paintings for the Mythical Goddess Tarot, with the inspiration of, and collaboration with Sage’s wisdom and vision. With each Goddess came complete downloads of their essence and frequency, offering healing and illumination to all who partake. This body of work is a core part of the Presence of the Divine Show, offering the healing of the Divine Mother to all.

Katherine Skaggs is also a painter of Souls, able to “see” the essence of each person beyond their human expression, connecting to their Divine light. Katherine reveals each person in vibrant color, symbol and imagery on canvas, with channeled guidance of their true essence, revealing soul truth and purpose, healing personality and human life experience. Each session results in a multidimensional soul portal with healing, soul guidance and illumination of one’s soul essence.

It was October 2004 when I finally honored my inner calling to more fully use my creative talents and abilities that I have had since birth. With the encouragement and assistance of my dear friend and most talented artisan Shiloh McCloud, I entered into a visualization to help me reconnect with my deep inner calling and creative juices. After only 20 or so minutes in a guided visualization, I entered my unused art studio and began painting again … after a hiatus of more than seven years. Not only did I begin painting again, but I also began using a new medium consisting of more brilliant colors than I had used before. These paints were vibrant, alive, intense pigments beyond what I had ever imagined in the past … including metallic pigments … taking my creativity to a new dimension … literally!

Katherine Skaggs' Soul Portrait

My first soul portrait was actually a creative process that wasn't initially focused on creating a portrait. Yet, it ultimately led to my own soul portrait … an intuitive self-portrait. Through several different sessions I worked on one canvas and laid down a series of patterns, shapes and colors.

Not having a particular vision for what was supposed to unfold on the canvas, I followed my inner voices and promptings. I didn’t even know it was going to be my own soul portrait when I began.

First, I painted the canvas entirely black. Next, as I began to experiment with my new and exciting paints, I painted a series of spirals covering the surface of the canvas… first using one pigment, then taking an entirely different pigment and blending it into the original spiral of pigment directly on the canvas. It was like chanting a mantra over and over, one spiral at a time, different pigments asking me to use them. I reached for each color based on intuition, not intellect. (more…)
