Being a Channel for Creativity

I beleive that we live in two worlds - the Physical World & the Creative World. When you put pen to paper you weild your magic wand (the pen) to open the portal to the creative world. The creative world is always there and waiting for you to come and play. And it is filled with ideas that are just for YOU. I first accessed the creative world as child who loved to sew and make quilts.

I have been sewing since I was about 8 years old. And it has always been a meditative and...

How Does Color Speak to You?

 

How does color speak to you? I still remember the day in October about 15 years ago when I stumbled into a book store in London. It was raining outside and I wanted to find a quiet place to wait for the storm to pass. I love walking the aisles of a bookstore in a new city.

I spent the morning with my art journal walking through the Victoria and Albert Museum. My heart and mind was filled with so many artistic images. I felt I would never be a true artist or make a mark on the...

The Graphic Recorder's Mindset

You are what you think, and what you think will appear in your work.

More than anything, doodling is a mindset. When we look at famous visual thinkers throughout history and in modern times, we see they share some similarities.

Who are some visual thinkers that you admire? Perhaps Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Leonardo da Vinci, Nikola Tesla, Buckminster Fuller, Frank Lloyd Wright and Pablo Picasso? What are some of their shared characteristics? They are curious, brave, courageous, open to...

Multiple Intelligences

(Infographic Featured in Lifestyle Artcile on Work & Life -  Blogher.com)

We all know that each person has different strengths, abilities and skills. I was first introduced to the concept of "multiple intelligences" when I read Howard Garner's book on the subject. I finally found a way to explain why I felt like I learned differently to other people. And why journaling was such an important aspect of my life.

When I was growing up the traditional schooling methods basically focused...

Understanding The Power of Creativity

I truly believe that when you put pen to paper, you open your heart channel for ideas, insights and inspirations.  We live in two worlds. There is the physical world and the creative world. And when you use your pen to capture your ideas it becomes your magic wand for accessing the universal download.

You might be in a place where you have not been creative in a very long time. Or you might feel like you have lost your creative mojo. You could be a new student of the Doodle...

She then explains there are 5 benefits from doodling. 

1. Doodling Helps You Concentrate

2. Doodling Makes You A More Productive Employee

Doodling is Thinking

(Infographic Published in The Huffington Post - November 1, 2016)

Although the word still causes much confusion, today the history of doodling is a lot clearer than it once was. Doodling, as we know, is a quick and limited drawing that looks to try and tap into the artistic talent of those who are involved. However, for too long may have viewed the art of doodling as nothing more than sketching or passing the time.  

However, doodling is far more of an art form or a skill than...
