Talent Scout

Talent Scout

2009-10-21 01Talent Scout is my search for stories about authentic, hilarious, zestful, courageous, intelligent, creative women. In more concise terms, women who are smart cookies. It is also a personal journey towards enhancing my own creativity. To have fun, not take life too seriously, draw new perspectives and cultivate my curiosities.

Through an ongoing dialogue, this diverse group of women will share their discoveries, inspiration and struggles. Glimpse inside, and see first-hand how space, materials, culture and community inform their work. I hope you will be inspired by each unique story and learn how creativity can be a force in your own life.

I am a mixed media artist passionate about advancing the creative life of others. With age most of us lose our sense of wonder and that feeling of awe in confronting the world. Yet without awe, life becomes routine. So in pursuit of new knowledge and experiences, I will tap my inner girl scout and dutifully post surprising, meaningful and interesting artifacts about living a creative life. When something strikes a spark of interest, I will follow it.

You can find out more about me on my website. If you have suggestions for women you think would be relevant for this blog contact me at mstevens@marilynstevens.com. I look forward to hearing your comments.
