Hey, Creative Woman!

Feeding your creative hungers is not self-indulgent — it’s how you will CHANGE THE WORLD! Join a growing movement of Creative World-Changers & get weekly inspiration for living a creative life, plus my Imperfectionist Manifesto & Keys to Creative Flow.

Join the Revolution!

Living a creative life is not about being “an artist.” It’s about going after your dreams, whatever they are. It’s about living an authentic life, the life you want–not the one your parents, or your friends, or television or your co-workers think you should have.

Living a creative life means looking your fears and self-doubt in the face, and stepping forward in spite of them. This is YOUR way of changing the world.
