              Kook Teflon

Haunting Imagery 

 

 

During Kooks (formerly Miss Oblivious) tenure in the Rain City ; she has been given access to the unique world of Seattle ’s anti-establishment & queer arts. Always with her camera in hand, Kook is just as comfortable participating in the events as she is photographing them, including creating hand-sewn dolls for performances by Circus Contraption, hosting parlor events at The Seattle Cabaret Festival, adorning Bellydance troupes as tarot cards, and crafting curios for The Can Can cabaret. Beyond the photography of events and performances, are her collection individual portraits that seem to capture the true temperament of her eccentric peers.

   Readings & Healings

 

 

Cunning Crow Apothocary

Thursdays 10am-6pm

Appoinment: paynecreations@gmail.com

 

A Hoodoo Practitioner, Root Worker & Witch. I was raised by fierce Hungarian women that taught me the ways of the old country and ancestor magic.

My practice started in the mid 80's when i was 14 with the help of my mother and her teachers's. Accompanying her for tarot gatherings, metaphysical workshops and classes & for a short time i would give past life readings to guests.

 

In the last decade i have embraced my relationship with the dead through  intimate encounters and telling their stories. I began to  focus on the healing to help others through medium ship, cabalistic praxis,intuition, plant life & spirit baths n' remedies . 

Personally experiencing  divorce, loss,death ,parenting & mid life have given me the tools for understanding/helping others to heal and grow to their full potential. I consistently attend workshops to heighten my wisdom & practices. 

 

Currently my work with others is focused on  vocabulary habits that can turn

 your life around with a positive outcome "Words Have Power and Cast Spells". 

I also help you release energy and patterns that are destructive with  a "Canoe Journey" that has helped many detach from toxic environments.

Working with you to love you, empower & live your life to the fullest. 

If you are ready, it takes work but the potentials are endless I am here, you are not alone!

Kook & Aaron...

"When asked what events one has proudly participated in over the last five years, most would mutter something about a promotion at work, some sort of commencement at school, or the final payment on some mundane material possession. Kook Teflon, on the other hand, has spent the last twenty years in an uninhibited pursuit of those events in life that permeate one with indignant awe".

 

Kook (formerly Miss Oblivious) has been documenting her surroundings through photography,words,publishing zines,film,collaborations and other visual arts since 1993. 

Beyond the photography of events and performances, are her collection of individual portraits that seem to capture the true temperament of her eccentric peers.

 

Aaron Campbell (Boogmanson) was born in a cave and raised in the woods of the obscure. He has been a successful tattoo artist for more than 25 years and has traveled all over the globe marking the flesh of many with exquisite ink designs inspired by intricate geometric, esoteric and mind boggling sciences....he also builds death masks for parties and carnival season.

Since 2014 -
Together Kook and Aaron have filmed and screened three short visually stimulating n dream state films to large crowds in their Seattle Community and they have build visual art doll curios that average 3ft x 2ft.
