Creative Play

Play is a “state of being,”  purposeless, fun and pleasurable…For the most part, the focus is on the actual experience, not on accomplishing a goal…Play is the purest expression of love.” (Stuart Brown)

“Play has been shown to release endorphins, improve brain functionality, and stimulate creativity. And it can even help to keep us young and feeling energetic. Studies show that play improves memory and stimulates the growth of the cerebral cortex.”  (Michael Forman)

The creative eye savors the interplay of form and color.


A game of luck and strategy stimulates problem solving skills, and improves relationships and your connection to others.


Creative digging can help one get in touch with one’s inner child.


My greatest accomplishment in recent years is finding what was left behind, but never lost; being a seeker of the creative life that sparked me as a young girl.

“The most creative act one will ever undertake is the act of creating oneself. ” ( Deepak Chopra)
