I’m Emma Saanen, known as Littlewolfgoat (my chosen name) and Sidhehound (my spirit name that was gifted to me). I’m a spirit-led wolf-child and I am here to support the co-creation of a more magical world. I express my purpose through my animistic practice and my visionary art.
I believe that art, and spiritual healing, should be available to as many people as possible. However it seems to be limited to only those who can "afford" it. I want to change that.
My dream is to offer creative and spiritual services to my community that are accessible to all, while allowing me to earn a modest living.
Who am I?
I’ve been following an animistic path since around 2004, finding my feet in 2016 as I worked through a close family bereavement. In the past I have trained in Wicca and Druidcraft, but neither were right for me. I am currently taking part in Shamanic Practitioner Training with Twobirds of Embracing Shamanism. I have a BA(Hons) in Environmental Art from the Glasgow School of Art, but that has very little bearing on my practice these days.
I am following my own path of healing, as I work with my fibromyalgia, depression, and my emotional intensity disorder. It has been a challenge, but things are looking bright right now.
I love the natural world, and I am working on getting to know my local land. I share my home with two cats, and my nesting partner. When I am not making magic, I enjoy reading non-fiction, playing games on my Switch, journalling, and having a wee cup of tea.
Would you like to join me on my journey?
Twitch - I livestream my digital art sessions (and the occasional game) three mornings a week. I invite you to pop in and create along with me. You can even share what you are working on in my Discord.
Littlewolfgoat - My blog, and is the hub of my online presence. I write about my creative pursuits, my spirituality, my veganism, my health, and my life experiences. My work gives voice to the spirits of the natural world, and reflects my aspirations for a kinder future for our one planet. I experiment with upcycled materials and photoshop, alongside drawing and painting in more conventional ways.
Sidhehound - My spirtual practice. I am midway through a Two Year Shamanic Practitioner Training course taught by Twobirds of Embracing Shamanism. I offer services as a healer on a pay what you can basis.
