|How and why did you begin to be creative?
Started writing as a young teen, and that's how I described myself... a writer.
I became bored with the systematic way of living taught in grade school. Even the creative courses, such as art or creative writing limited you to form and function. Art is intuition, wether musical, literal or abstract
I was always creative. I began taking it seriously when I was fourteen years old. I wrote for a literary magazine, and read lots of books.

Far too many years ago!! We've both been working as actors, devisers, directors and lecturers for twenty years now - but in 2007 we finally decided to create a company which would allow us to explore all the ideas we've been too busy to pursue. So the past five years have been about being brave and taking risks with our creativity!
As a kid; I had a pencil.
I have always been very creative. My mom was an English teacher and an artist, so she took my sister and I to art classes when we were very young. It was a great way to help us to see the world in a creative way.
It was the only thing that made me feel connected to something bigger than myself.

being creative is fun and challenging. fun in a sense that you make use of your imagination and challenging in a sense that you express that imagination onto medium that self explains your idea.
I believe my brain was wired that way always, so it's a difficult question to answer. How? I've no idea. Why? Seemingly to survive. Trusting my creativity took me far longer & was gained through repetition and practice.
I am not sure this was a choice I ever made! My brain does not allow me to be any other way than creative. What I do have is sometimes the problem is reigning my ideas in.
I think very differently to many other people, I can think very creative solutions for many business ideas and problems and people hire me for this ingenuity I show.
As a result of this my confidence is very high, this creativity is not necessarily around art as it is often associated. This is having the flare to come up with business ideas which is why I have a number of businesses under my belt, being a successful entrepreneur.
I saw being creative as an outlook to expressing myself, I was inspired and saw it as important not just to myself but to society. I don't just see being creative and making a living doing it as an escape from the mudane workplace, but also important to enrich culture.
I created Yoga Jewelry by Moondog Treasures 5 years ago out of my desire to merge two of my favorite things: yoga and art. My jewelry includes mala bracelets, thai silver pendants on beaded strands, soldered pieces, stamped pieces, and jewelry made from PMC (precious metal clay).
was it a mistake or a mission for life as I started to generate some circles and boxes? Now I know, it was a mission for a lifetime.
at the age of 22 I had graduated from University and went back to commercial fishing with my father. Taking an american friend around New Zealand, when we visited wellington I caught up with a woman I went to university with, she was by now, in a professional contemporary dance company. I watched them rehearse for an hour and was completely gobsmackeed and hooked! I left commercial fishing moved to wellington and began doing as many dance classes every day as I could. Usually got 3 classes in each day , ballet, modern and a 1 on 1 class in which my teacher went over a different ballet step each day with me for and hour.
After 6 months of hat routine by day and washing dishes by nigh to pay the bills, I successfully auditioned for my friends company and so began my 8 yr professional dance career in NZ and Australia. Blessed.
