As a passionate visual artist myself, I experience all the challenges of building and maintaining a creative life, balancing my art-making with my life responsibilities. Beginning my art career mid-life, I found working with a Creativity Coach to be a valuable guide on my creative journey.
As your Creativity Coach, I will accompany you on a journey of identifying, defining and actualizing an artistic vision. You determine where the work needs to begin, right where you are today. The possibilities for our coaching work might be:
Igniting your creative fire
Finding inner strengths and inspiration
Prioritizing short and long term goals
Taking necessary actions, step-by-step
Overcoming blocks: self-doubt, inner and outer critics, perfectionism, procrastination, should’s
Finding venues to show your art and market it
If you encounter unexpected ruts, roadblocks, detours or occasional wheelspinning on your creative journey, I will be there to assist you by identifying which actions you might take to gain traction and re-direction, so you can move ahead. You are in the driver’s seat; I am your support team.
You will arrive at the best solutions and strategies for your own unique creative journey. Accountability to yourself and your coach will support your creative efforts.
Methods of Working:
Creativity coaching via phone, e-mail or a combination of both. I offer a complimentary phone session to determine if we will work well together. Various packages are available for three month blocks of coaching. Please contact me to learn more: firstname.lastname@example.org
