I have had the amazing privilege and pleasure to be interviewed by a number of women in the online expressive arts/creativity community who are themselves incredible artists and creative powerhouses.
Some of these interviews are in an audio format and some of them are written responses to various questions.
I feel greatly honored to share some of these conversations about living a creative life here with you as well as introducing you to some truly delightful and amazing examples of creative feminine leadership.
If you go to listen or read the interviews please do yourself a favor and spend some time at each of their sites. They will completely inspire you as well as offering you multitudinous opportunities to get your creative juices flowing.
I totally adore Jamie Ridler of Jamie Ridler Studios. She is a fabulous creativity coach, NIA instructor and blogger who is based in Toronto. She is totally committed to the belief that we are all creative and she has created a very nurturing environment on her blog and website that supports women to claim their most heartfelt dreams. This podcast is part of an interview series called Creative Living With Jamie. We had a wonderful time talking about play, pleasure and healing your creative wounds. You can find this interview in Jamie’s Creative Living With Jamie Collection Season 1.
Leah Piken Kolidas is one of my favorite, all around cool people who is also an awe-inspiring artist and a blogger with an extremely popular blog called Creative Every Day. She has developed a forum that supports an amazingly diverse community of artist types through her blog and her creativity challenges like Art Every Day Month. We had a wonderful time talking about creativity and the magic of intuitive painting. To join us in that conversation click here.

The magical Goddess Leonie Allen who lives in Australia and who has the website Goddess Guidebook and I had a conversation on SKYPE that was recorded on video. The video quality is not the best but the energy of creative joyfulness really comes through as we laugh and snort, talk to god and share our love for the expressive arts. To see and hear that funfilled gigglefest click here.
I was also incredibly honored to be part of Goddess Leonie’s World’s Biggest Summit which inspired me to produce my very first video class. It’s called Generosity And Creative Flow and I filmed it while I was at Ghost Ranch in 2011. To see that video click here.
Laura Hollick of Soul Art Studios is an incredible artist and self described art shaman who created her own online show called Soul Art TV. And through that medium she interviewed about 50 people she deemed to be Creative Spiritual Revolutionaries, including yours truly. She is based in Canada so we had a lovely chat via SKYPE that was recorded as a video about many things including the power of community to heal creative wounds and how isolation is the creativity killer.
I was asked to prepare a vlog for the magically creative Hali Karla for her blog Holistic Creative Chats. She created something called the Artist~Healer Circle which was is a free series of interviews and blog posts about the connection between art and healing. She honored me by asking me to be the keynote speaker for the series and you can see my presentation here.

I also participated in something called A Year With Myself, which is an e-course based on thematic weekly quests of self-love and self-discovery, that was created by Cigdem Korbu. And of course my theme was the creativity. I was interviewed about the creative process which was something that you could only see by paying for the program BUT there was also a weekly journal prompt that all the “instigators” were asked to provide. And here’s mine.
