When I started as a full time artist I never dreamed of the ideas, challenges and opportunities that confronted me over the years. I simply wanted to paint and sell paintings. So much more happened along the way. This Book Bundle contains two books: 52 Weeks of Creative Living and the other, An Artist's Survival Guide. 

About the bookS

In An Artist's Survival Guide I describe the beginning of my new career as a full-time artist. Then a series of lessons, experiences and insights that helped me along the way. This theme continues in 52 Weeks of Creative Living. The idea is to have a weekly dose of inspiration and a reminder that creativity is a calling that must be heeded. Both books are a fun read whenever you feel like touching base with your creative nature.
