Make Your Mark

We are born to create. It’s in our DNA. We were made in the image of the Master Artist himself, yet we often discount what is innate by saying “oh, I’m not good at art,” “I can’t draw” or “I’m not creative.” Maybe we narrow the definition of creativity to artistic ability alone.

The Joy of Moving Forward

The Joy of Moving Forward

Life can be messy and sometimes we feel like WE are a mess. We reach a point where we want to clean up the mess and get a fresh start but don’t really know how.  If that’s the case, maybe it’s time to step back and see your life through a new lens, a creative lens. Can you remember as…
