West Los Angeles, California. United States
We are all creative beings and have a unique story to share. Participating in the arts is a transcendent experience–– art helps us overcome the worst in Life, and allow us to celebrate the best in Life. I support my students and clients in their creative explorations by offering my open ear, strong shoulder, clear eye and true heart as ready resources in the creative journey.
Methods of Working:
I focus on group creativity classes in a private or corporate setting, but am available for 1-on-1 coaching as well, in person (location permitting) or via phone or email.
• Creative Play
• Art as Healing across disciplines
• Blasting Through Marketing Blocks for Independents
• Journal Work
Individual coaching in person, by phone or via email.
The “Choose Your Muse” Workshops are
a series of multi-disciplinary play dates using the ancient Greek Muses of Inspiration as a framework for exploring creativity. The workshops include theater games, writing exercises, and painting activities to help students get their creative juices flowing in a non-competitive, non-judgmental atmosphere. The Workshops create an environment where participants have permission to let loose and have fun – something many people have not done since kindergarten. No special skills or experience are necessary, just a willingness to play!
I am available to speak to clubs, organizations and at corporate retreats on a variety of creative topics tailored to reflect the need and mission of the organization involved.
