My Meditation Journals are helping to blossom beautiful creativity in others and I am so stoked!

Yesterday, I was in my booth at Whistler’s annual Bizarre Bazaar and suddenly this girl who was walking by then pointed at my Ganesha meditation journal shouts , “That’s my journal, that’s my journal!” Janey then very enthusiastically started to tell me how she had completed Melissa McCain’s “30 Day Doodle Challenge” with my journal and how it had opened up her creativity by leaps and bounds which you can see in her beautiful “doodles” in the attached photos she sent me. It is magic moments of synchronicity like this that make me so grateful for this creative life and how it helps in some small way for others to blossom in their creativity too.

On this journey starting from Kota Kinabalu on the island of Borneo to Beijing, China and Manila, Philippines to Whistler, B.C. to and now on a lake way south of Seattle, in the USA I’ve found incredible inspiration in the places I’ve lived and the people I have met have informed and engendered my creative expression. These surf art pieces have been a creative culmination beginning with my first surf art show in Whistler BC, some 8 years ago. Now, after over 20 solo and group art shows, tradeshows and my prints featured in 20 retail and hotels in North America I have taken my art to the next level introducing my first line of journals and purses in early 2012. This fusion of ancient Eastern philosophies together with the strength, courage and grace that is demanded of the surfer, are metaphors that are meant to invite the viewer to explore our own inner journeys and how life at play… be it skiing, surfing or snowboarding or whatever, is our meditation and where we express our courage, strength and passion.
