bringing animal energy to you | artist | animist

Hello there!

I’m Emma Saanen, known as “littlewolfgoat” (my internet handle) and “Sidhehound” (my Pagan name). 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.

My dream

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, and 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, journaling, and having a wee cup of tea.

"By being animal, one fully understands what it is to be human".

Animal illustration is my artistic love. I am passionate in my attempts to convey the energy of an animal through my artwork. I devote time working with the essence of an animal's energy before committing pen and ink to paper.

As a thank you to the animals that inspire me, I donate 10% my profits to one of the charities I support.
