She's got the whole world in her hands
She’s got the whole world in her hands | Mixed Media on Canvas | Louise Gallagher 2014

Welcome to my place. I’m glad you’re here. I am a writer, story-teller, artist, mentor, coach — a creativity activist. I spent my career in the communications biz – and always, i created ‘on-the-side’. I’ve written a daily blog since 2007 (I know! Way ahead of the curve.) Now, I also create everyday in my studio, Dare Boldly Art. As a writer and an artist, I focus on the intersection of words and art that inspires, touches hearts, open minds and sets people free to dance and laugh and run and play in a world of possibility.

As with all things, I am a work in progress. From online workshops and tutorials and in-studio workshops (hopefully soon again!) I create the path as I go, always with a deep desire to ignite creativity and inspire you to dive deep into your own creative essence and express. And from there, to express yourself with wild abandon, confident and free on the far side of your comfort zone!

I hope you like what you read and see here. I hope you find inspiration, thought-provoking ideas and I hope that together, we can journey into discovering all that makes our human spirit shine through art and words that create ripples of beauty for all the world to see how truly magnificent our human condition can be!

Please join me at my daily blog (DareBoldly.com) for inspiring thoughts, art and ideas on how to

Live Bravely.
