    Creativity Tribe Pop-Up Shop Sneak Peek

    Creativity Tribe Pop-Up Shop Sneak Peek This sneak peek at the Creativity Tribe Pop-Up shop was promised in last week’s post.

    Loving the Farmers’ Market

    Recently, when I began telling people the big news that I am about to share with you about Creativity Tribe, I would say it and wait for the Earth to rumble back in delight.  The actual rumbling never happened, but my heart would leap ever so slightly, and I would know that my decision to apply as a year-round vendor at the Corpus Christi Southside Farmers’ Market was the right choice. And with that…. it’s not hard to guess my announcement… You can now find Creativity Tribe at the Southside Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings! Yep!  There goes the heart leaping… and the tummy fluttering with a bit of nerves…

    On a Roll Art Shows

    The last several months I have had some art shows pop up locally.  One was part of Contemporary Art Month- Corpus Christi (in March), and the other, a series which features a local artist each month.  As it happens, they are also at two of my favorite local sipping spots. One, for tea; the other, coffee. Lotus Dreams Tea This is my second year to join with a local business for Contemporary Art Month – Corpus Christi, sponsored in part by K Space Contemporary.  (Last year’s show celebrated the year after cancer.) I have been partnering with the tea divas at Lotus Dreams Tea for workshops and creative happenings since the…

    Girl About Town

    This month I have been all over the place… quite literally!  My art work is showing in four different venues in my hometown, and I couldn’t be more over the moon!  I can’t help but think back to the days when I first began showing my art.  Having one piece in a show was a big struggle for my self-esteem.  I was an artist, tight in the bud. Fresh out of college, I discovered a local artist co-op, KSpace.  I had taken a few art classes, was doing The Artist’s Way, and decided to follow the impulse of my Creative Spirit.  I took some photos of the little bit of…

    My Dirty, Filthy Artsy Life

    I have been getting my hands dirty with paint and marker, glue and glitter almost everyday.  It makes me feel alive! The drawing above was done during an early morning drawing session with a few little girls I was hanging out with before Art Camp.  They started talking about fairies and asked me to draw one.  This is my little Spirit Sprite.  She was the delight of the little artists and inspired a whole day’s worth of winged one art sketches by them. This Summer has been filled with Art and Drama Camps, each day offering a chance to dig into my creativity with play and spontaneity.   All that…

    Where Art Meets Mystery

    My journal has become my closest companion this last month.  It all began as I started attending a weekly meditation group and found rich stories pouring out of my inner worlds.  Often the stories were of my own healing or the impressions I felt from those I was close to.  Then, I began working with family members who were ill and a friend who was dying and the images I saw when I closed my eyes and got quiet invited themselves onto the pages of my journal. I didn’t set out to draw my inner landscapes and the muses that populated them, but as my hand moved across the page…
