I view home as my creative center. This is a book, a journal, a creative interactive guide for you to use to find your sweet home.


I've been working on a book for two years now.

Maybe not a book. A journal of finding myself...an exercise in re-connecting with my passion in art.

It's a book, a journal, a lesson if you care to find it...an interactive play thing.This book is about finiding that sweet-spot in yourself where your passion and creativity comes from.

It all started out as a way to "recapture" my creativity and passion for painting and illustration. I had gone through a rough patch...a dry spell, and was having a really hard time with my creative blockers ( I still do sometimes!). So I decided to start a journal/sketchbook to get back my sweet home (i.e. my creative center...as I see it, my body is my home in this life, and I felt out of control of it...this was my journey to finding home again. 

The journal started...and stopped...and spilled over into many different forms... it is pages in notebooks and paintings and photographs, and illustrations...questions, frustrations...questions and answers...quotes from friends and family...it's ready to be brought together in to book-like form and be reproduced. It is a teaching tool...a learning tool....a self guided journey and a journey I have taken...looking inward at my home.

Somehow it turned into a tool I wanted to use to help other people who may be having the same problem...so it became  full of lists to fill and pages to doodle in and questions to ask yourself and exercises to play around with and get juices flowing.

The book is almost finished...to find out more you can follow me on my blog...
