Rekindle the Creative Spark You Had as a Child

Creative Play™ recaptures the fearlessness and the joy of creating that we all had as kids. You may have lost touch with your own creativity along the way to adulthood, but play is a great way to get it back. 

Creative Play™ isn’t just for people who hope to be full-time artists. It’s for anyone who wants:

  • An easy way to be more creative in 15 minutes a day
  • To reconnect with their creative soul
  • To get out of a rut and shake things up a bit
  • To reduce stress and find more joy

Creative Play™ saved my life. That may sound extreme, but I believe it to be true. Play didn’t come naturally to me. I have been a serious, focused, and joyless stick-in-the-mud at least since the 5th grade. In many ways that has served me well and I have a list of academic and career achievements because of it. But, happiness was elusive. As I neared my 40th birthday, my situation was at its worst. I was working 50 – 60 hour weeks in a job that was making me absolutely miserable while still just keeping my head above water at home. There was no time for myself or my creativity and I was so far gone that I couldn’t even figure out what the problem was until I reached my breaking point and quit my job. Slowly, I started experimenting with creative play and it was in that play, in exercising my creativity, that I finally found the joy that I had been missing for so many years. Now, just a couple of years later, I am a working artist and I’ve never been happier.
