Inside Your Creative DNA, you’ll take a close-up look at what makes your artistry unique —
so you can harness it and truly own your creative kookiness.
Like many creative people, you are a hodgepodge of interests and a melange of mediums.
You like all kinds of expression — movies, books, podcasts, social media — you’ve even howled at the full moon because stuff like that lights up your genius.
You may also dabble in many art forms. Writing, drawing, dancing, painting, cooking…if it’s about making something, you’re into it.
Sometimes, being good at lots of things
makes it feel like you’re not GREAT at anything
And as we all know, they don’t give out awards for just having all our great ideas. And there comes a point when all
your brilliant ideas can start to weigh you down.
Like a giant Santa bag of gifts you’re carrying around forever, if you don’t claim your creative power, your gifts can weigh you down.
So what ties it all together? Sometimes your love affair with life and making things makes you feel flakier than a Meilleur Ouvrier de France's* best croissant.
Your inner critic loves to call you out on being someone who flits around. Never finishes things. Can’t settle on one art form. And the word ‘niche’? ICK!
You’re tired of fumbling for words when explaining your passions to people.
You’re sick of comparing yourself to your creative heroes who seem to have it all figured out.
If only you knew their secret.
I get it. I see you, creative superstar in hiding.
Wouldn’t it be great to finally accept that you are a unique butterfly, flitting from beautiful project to beautiful project? And that you’re sustained, NOT drained, by (eating) coloring with all the crayons in the box?
Finally, understand your interests so they all make sense on a deep level. See your preferences and ideas connect and you enjoy your creative gifts.
Guess what? You get to know who you are at your core. You get to express yourself fully in your creativity.
You’re allowed to go from feeling clueless and scattered to feeling confident and empowered.
No more feeling like a flaky creative star hiding under a cloud of confusion!
Map your Creative DNA and finally enjoy productivity from the inside-out.
"This program is enlightening and fun to do. I accomplished a lot. I got on paper things I always knew about myself but never put together. I can articulate how my values relate to my paintings and to the story they tell. There are more possibilities for the work now." Pamela
Understand What Makes You Tick
Join Creative DNA and finally connect the dots on why your creative projects must be made
I’ve been coaching creatives for 23 years. In Your Creative DNA, I share the life-changing processes I use with my clients.
These are the power moves that amplify your creative confidence so you can make what you want.
- Gain clarity on why you make your art
- Access internal motivation you can use at work, at home, and in your studio.
- Never be blocked or stuck again.
Okay, I can’t really promise that last one. BUT! When/if you do feel stuck, you will have the assets you generate from this workshop to dig your way back into the sunshine tout de suite.
"I have been applying my list of values to everything this week. That exercise was hugely helpful in taking on a new perspective.
I am so used to just writing my inner monologue. Now, I like peering in from the outside, from the frame of my values.
I didn't realize how deeply they run through all the work I am doing, or how consistent they are.
This is making a big difference in my writing confidence." - Shannon H
This is what I want for you and for all dreamers everywhere. Let’s start with you and watch the joy spread.
Who’s this for?
Writers, artists, visionaries, and anyone who wants to end the inner battle around making things.
If you want to know why you want to wear star-spangled bell-bottoms and knit tiny sweaters for your pets, you will benefit from this class.
Finally, all your kooky ways make sense.
Who’s this NOT for?
It’s not for you if you have never bravely turned the microscope on yourself. If you’d rather keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel and drive life like you always have, do not take this class.
The shock of actual change may be too much for you.
Don’t take this if you want a quick flash of understanding.
This is not for you if you can’t invest a few hours in what could possibly be the most insightful process you’ve ever done.
The course costs $66 and will take several hours over a couple of weeks. This self-paced online class will guide you through my proven process to know, like, and trust your creative self.
"I recommend this class for anyone interested in bypassing the superficial assessment mindset that's so prevalent in the self-help world. Your Creative DNA allows us to excavate what's important and express it creatively so that it lives in us in a different way." Debra DeVilbiss
What does Your Creative DNA include?
In this 21-lesson class, you will get videos and written materials that guide you to mine your Creative DNA.
Everything is included in a PDF you'll get at the end of class.
Sign up any time and start the 25-day program. The lessons will always be available to you if it takes you longer than 25 days.
There will be open comments sections where you can ask questions and share your process. I'll be there to answer and cheer you on.
You'll see how others uncover their Creative DNA.
Your Creative DNA gives you the chance to:
- Deep dive into your values. (I know, ‘values’ has become an empty buzzword. But trust me, you will see this in a whole new way.)
- Connect your values to the themes of your creative obsessions.
- Map your Adventure Resume to see how everything you do comes from your Creative DNA.
- Have specific ways to make all of this actionable and visible in your daily life.
Lightbulb moments are only useful in a blinding, momentary flash. Your Creative DNA will give you actionable insight that will change the way you think, work, and live.
"I loved tying my values and themes to my creative writing. It was a huge a-ha moment." Karen Bayly
OMG that sounds like a lot of work. (I can hear you! I get it...)
Indeed, this is a process that will take some time. But what else are you doing?
Rewatching all 17 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy so you can feel all the feels instead of getting your emotional thrills from your own creative adventures. Oh no, you wouldn’t do that!
*Hooray! You followed the asterisk all the way to this point.
You deserve a prize for going the distance. Maybe not the meilleur ouvrier de France, an award given to the BEST baguette-maker, croissant-fluffer and cheesemaker in France.
I am doing a happy dance knowing your life is going to change as a result of knowing your Creative DNA.
"I have recommended this to friends who are writing and looking for direction to better understand their own process and their own 'why.' Your Creative DNA was very manageable and understandable. Your comments were insightful and helped move me forward." Carolyn Dragon
