Learning to harness this creative energy early, I also began to pick up drawing and painting as an outlet, and at a young age won many awards for my art.
While I found success in my artistic gifts, I frequently struggled in the school setting. I spent most of my youth trying to grasp conventional studies, and, over time, my connection to that creativity diminished.
Can you imagine?
Fast-forward, I overcame the obstacles and earned a Master’s Degree in Art Education. I had a growing passion and I wanted to share it with children.
Working as a teacher, I had an epiphany. I witnessed certain students who perceived life differently. Like me, they were often challenged in the classroom setting, yet, when provided an avenue to explore their inner awareness, they flourished.
And wow, did they flourish…
Surprise, I have 3 eyes! is a story that taps into this notion of expanding inner awareness. It has a simple and captivating narrative, allowing children of all ages to learn that there is a greater reality than often experienced.
I remember some of my favorite books growing up. The ones where I searched every page for something new and amazing, eager to uncover a treasure I didn’t see prior. It is with the remembrance of this joy that Surprise, I have 3 eyes! was inspired.
Join me, and the many others, as we look to nurture the creative spirit and limitless potential of our children.
