Kathryn Babboni is an intuitive artist, teacher and healer living in the Hill Country.
Although always an artistic person, she began painting and crafting jewelry in 2004 as physical therapy following a series of spine and head injuries left her facing disability.
She soon discovered that art-making was a powerful catalyst for her own healing and transformation, and now teaches intuitive and healing art techniques to others.
Kathryn’s creative explorations are inspired by her love for Mother Earth, music, meditation and dreamwork… her intent is to invoke a heart-felt response and healing in others through her intuitive expressions of color, light and frequency…her creative vision is manifested through heart-centered, exploration and play with the varied mediums of acrylic and watercolor painting, pen and ink, colored pencil drawing, sculpture, photography, jewelry, metal-smithing, found object assemblage and collage.
Kathryn is a Certified Reiki Master, Shamanic Practitioner, herbalist, aromatherapist, crystal worker, and student of sound healing.
She lives in Dripping Springs with her husband, Adam, and their three cats and Catahoula puppy, all rescued animals.
She joined the Bunkhouse Gang and Wimberley Valley Arts League in 2015, and is an active member of the Artist’s Alliance of the Hill Country, since 2013.
