art for those who have the courage to sit with their truth

Welcome to Keeper of the Treasure and Catspaw Studio, dedicated to the practice of pausing. Keeper of the Treasure offers multimedia art that both expresses and evokes soulful appreciation of personal transformations. It introduces Inside the Belly of the Whale, a photo-journal and visual narrative of spiritual transformation after great loss.  In classic language, it is the hero’s journey of the founder of Keeper of the Treasure.

Finding the support you need

For both yoga and meditation, most of us need the support of a cushion (or, as it is called in the East, a zafu).  Catspaw offers one-of-kind, hand-made zafus.  Catspaw Studio believes that the key to navigating modern life is learning how to pause.  Using art, yoga and meditation, Catspaw Studio creates a space that encourages you to pause the messiness of everyday life, with the support of our Catspaw Cushions.

Inside the Belly of the Whale is a visual narrative of the spiritual transformation of the author and artist/photographer, L.L. Griffin, triggered by the death of her mother and the downward spiral Griffin’s life took afterward. The Biblical story of Jonah and the whale both gave Griffin the title and inspired her story.
