Creativity, meditation and Jon Muth

Jon Muth's approach to drawing and working with children is such an inspiration for my creativity workshops. Not only is he a master at his craft, but he also embodies a simple and intuitive approach which is aimed at depicting the essence of the subject. The language he uses in this film reminds me of Andy Goldsworthy in River and Tides. Muth's strong connection to subject matter and suspension of self allows the movement and ink to create a moment on paper. 

Holidays, kids and coaching

The holiday season in Costa Rica is so rich when I have the opportunity to work with families over Christmas and New Years. There is something creative and inspiring about sharing the wonder of surfing and the ocean with young people. It's amazing to see their confidence, skills and competency progress over the week and watch as they create a connection to the ocean through surfing.
