 Life, Art and Inspiration

Shift:  Stop 'trying'. Start creating.

I'm willing to guess you're here because you're trying to lead a life that includes time for your art but it's just not happening.  You dream of creatively expressing yourself but somehow it keeps eluding you.

Real life keeps getting in the way.

Am I right? 

You may feel ready to chuck it because your creative passion and busy life just don't mix.

I know, because I was there once, too, with my nose pressed up against the glass of my dreams, looking in. I wasted a lot of precious time waiting before I discovered how to shift from 'trying' to taking action. 

So I get it. And I have a solution because I've been there...done that. 

You don't have to make a choice.

You start by rediscovering what you understood naturally as a kid but forgot when you became ‘a responsible adult’. Do what works for you. Find your own way (and have some fun).

Never mind what the gurus say. Forget the formulas and clever plans. Reclaim your natural style and trust yourself. Build on your strengths. Right smack dab in the middle of now

I help you do just that in Shift: Live your artist life today. Not after the kids grow up or you retire but today.

We focus on you, the creator as an individual, including your inner dialog and how you like to work. By identifying and understanding your ‘style’, you can develop a highly personalized and productive creative practice that fits you like that proverbial glove and takes into account the demands on your time.

That means you can stoke your creative fire in the life you lead life today AND into the future. 

How to create a shift

Each week we get together on a video call that includes great content, inspiring discussions, a dash of coaching and the opportunity to discover you're not alone. 

You'll discover your Personal Style during this program and how to use that knowledge to create your own unique creative practice. A practice that aligns with who you are and how you like to do things. No more trying to fit into someone else's idea of 'what works'. No more trial and error. No more wondering what you're doing 'wrong'. 

What to expect:
  • Understanding of your personal style ​
  • How to build on your strengths rather squeezing into a 1-size-fits-all solution
  • How curiosity is the ultimate weapon against fear and creative blocks
  • How to deflate the Inner Critic who holds you back
  • A highly personal creative practice that blends into the life you lead today
  • Support for your journey – valuable tools, resources and community
  • Guidance from a working artist/writer who is also a trained, experienced coach
  • A weekly group call and valuable resources between calls
How do I know this works?

Because I've walked this path just like you. I've been where you are. I tried for too long to do it 'by the book' and follow the expert's advice. It wasn't until I understood my own, very personal way of working and being, that I achieved a creative practice that fit my style. That's when I bid farewell to the 'shoulds' (or at least the ones getting in my way.). 

Today I live the creative life I only dreamt of once. I play in a studio overlooking the Bay of Fundy. I'm an artist, published author and creativity coach. I use my training and experience to guide artists and writers just like you on a personal journey designed (as Jung put it) “to find your way back to the deepest springs of life" and take action on your creative dreams.
