about LA

Exploring your creativity invites joy into your life.

Embracing your creativity infuses your life with joy.

Manifesting your creativity gives you a joyous purpose.

We, the Royal We, the Community We, the Family We, the World We,

We Need Art.

We need Your Art.

We need Your Art to delight our eyes, to hold our coffee, to scream our frustration to the galaxy, to celebrate our joys, to tell us our own stories.

Art fills our lives with purpose.

Art is our creativity manifested.

Everyone is creative. Each time you make a decision, whether what to eat or what to wear or how to paint a canvas, you express your creativity.

And each form of creativity has its own audience. Someone out there is waiting to see what you have to create. Your special something. Your curious creation.

So… let’s make it happen.

How We Work Together

I love helping all kinds of artists manifest their creativity. Through a combination of creative play and exploration of your curiosity, we work together to inspire you to create your chosen art form. Then, we continue the work by finding the space to put your art into the world.

You explore and manifest your creativity through my combination of exercises and accountability. Then, if you want to create a business around your art, my business experience and knowledge are at your service.

I am your number one cheerleader. I am the one who tells you to go for it, who helps you create milestones along the way to your goal and who helps you pick yourself up and continue when the road seems too hard.

I listen. I learn. I advise. I laugh.

I am here to support you as you connect with your creativity, find your meaning and manifest it in the world.

And I delight in doing so.

When I am talking to you, I am with you. If something comes up during the week which makes me think of you, I let you know.

We all experience ups and downs, emotionally, economically, artistically. I am here to help you travel through them with an eye toward enhancing your creative life. I am invested in your success. As life twists and turns, I continue to be a presence in your life. (Unless you don’t want me to do that. I’m not a stalker!)

Most of the time, the real work is play. You forget that as you grow up. Life and work can bear you down, pushing the fun to the side.

I help you remember how to play, and then I help you transform that play into inspiration and motivation.

 

My Background

I pursue art as it takes me, but my main love is writing. I have a degree from the University of Denver in English with an emphasis on Theatre. I am a serial entrepreneur, having run businesses as diverse as an internet service provider, yarn & fabric shop, and liquor store. I’ve worked for a university, a non-profit arts council, and a small manufacturer hand-building custom wooden furniture. I’ve been a solo-preneur as a knitting designer & teacher and writer.

In my working life, I’ve been “behind the scenes,” working as the bookkeeper and administrative glue which holds companies together. With this intensely personal understanding of the decidedly unglamourous side of business, I help you create the systems and processes which will make that side easier to manage.
