“Why should we all use our creative power?
Because there is nothing that makes people so generous, joyful, lively, bold and compassionate, so indifferent to fighting and the accumulation of objects and money. Because the best way to know the truth or beauty is to try to express it.” Brenda Ueland
Somewhere along the road from childhood to adulthood we often lose our creative spark.
I believe there is a lot of value to being creative, but ultimately we seek fulfillment and joy. I am always amazed at how much we benefit from even the simplest creative moments and yet we pass up too many opportunities to experience them. Creativity doesn't just happen—You have to make it happen. Let's exercise our creativity, enhance our lives, and rediscover our creative spark. ~Maria
I am an artist and writer. I write creative based content and have authored two books, Project 52 and Coffee Break Creativity. Both are creative notebooks, simple and fun to use. I also facilitate workshops and practice what I teach—I paint, keep a notebook, and enjoy photography. As a creativity facilitator, I help others embrace creativity in everyday life and encourage them to use simple actions to tap into their creative side.
Invite me to your next event. I am available for your retreats, conferences, meetings/events.

Fun Stats: You can find me and my husband starting our day with a cup of coffee on our back porch in Leander, TX. You may see me on my daily walk or at the park with one or more of my 3 grandchildren. Most afternoons I've got my music blasting, creating, dreaming and doodling. I am always open to art, travel and a good laugh.
