Unleash Your Creativity

Play Like a Kid! Have Fun!
Bring Out Your Creative Genius!

I believe everybody is creative at some level of their being. Given the opportunity to express it can be a wonderful journey of self-discovery. I can speak for myself when I say this because I never knew I was creative until I discovered art and photography in my 20’s.

Ever since then, I have blossomed as the individual I was meant to be, not who I was brought up to be. I have been fortunate to make a 35-year career from my creativity and want to share it.

I hope to unleash the creativity in everyone who takes part and bring out the music within them that exists in their bottled up creative genie who just needs to be uncorked and allowed to play like a kid again.
