Open the door to your creative awakening

“Do everything with great love, whether it is painting, writing, dancing, relationships or learning.”—Sandra Duran Wilson

Sharing your passion is the greatest gift you can give, and the journey to your creative awakening starts with a single step—or a single exercise. You never know what will open the door.

This book is for curious souls wanting to find the right spark to jump-start their creativity. Inside, there are 52 chapters with an exercise for each week of the year featuring a step-by-step art, writing or meditation project. Following the flow of the seasons, the exercises are designed to take you from the spring of your intuition, through the summer of personal growth, fall of self-discovery to arrive at the end of your creative cycle refreshed, revived and renewed.

Find your voice and vision:

  • 52 fun and beautiful projects offer a new chance at self-discovery every week for one year— they are not necessarily sequential and can be completed at any time on your journey
  • Weekly prompts merge art making with universal life challenges to help you open your mind and explore different spiritual and creative philosophies

Refill your well, become the light, expand yourself and your story.

About the Author

The senses become intertwined in the mind of the artist. Sounds appear as colors, numbers sing and songs and frequencies dance in her head. Synesthesia is a crossing of the senses. The mixed-media work represents a beautiful blending of sounds, nature and science.

Sandra Duran Wilson comes from a family of artists and scientists. She grew up in a world where all things were possible in her imagination. It was a world where she could look through the microscope in her father’s office and paint what she saw. Her early years were spent on the border of Mexico where the people, animals, landscape, music, culture and the stories of the curanderos shaped her reality. Years later she would return frequently to Mexico and South America to absorb the culture, traditions and art. Her spirituality combined with her scientific studies directed her work from realism to abstraction.

Her work is influenced by scientific concepts in physics, chemistry and biology. The pure fun of exploring what paint can do and her natural curiosity keeps the work fresh and lively. She is continually exploring new surfaces, materials and techniques. Her work is represented in galleries in the U.S. and Australia and is found in corporate, civic and educational institutions and private collections globally. She experiments, paints, writes and teaches at her studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She also teaches around the U.S., Europe and Australia. She is the author of six art technique books and several DVDs, and her work has been featured in numerous books and magazines. Visit her website at sandraduranwilson.com.
