We play


When we were kids, we spent days lost in the joys of play.

As we got older, play was replaced with perfectionism, completion, and “adulting.”

We never lose our need to play, even as adults. We need time to have fun, be silly, be imaginative, and connect with others.

I want to bring people together to revisit the joy of child-like play.

We Create

When we were kids, we would create art for fun.

As we got older, fun was replaced with perfectionism, commercialism, and criticism.

We never lose our need for fun art, even if we don’t think of ourselves as artists. We need to spend time doing art for fun’s sake. To be messy, be creative, and have fun in the process.

I want to bring people together to revisit the joy of child-like creativity.


We all need time to play and create throughout our lives.
