If you've been feeling a lack of passion or aliveness, or maybe you've told yourself you're not the creative/artistic type, this event is for you! 

I am putting together an incredible show with a full film production crew in a beautiful venue, and featuring 6 amazing performance artists who will perform and share their stories of how they move past the fear, self doubt and judgement that limit our creativity and self expression. The event will be held in San Francisco on May 24th. It will be professionally filmed and also live streamed on the internet for the world to watch! This is True Colors TV's biggest production yet!! 

Bringing these performers before you in this beautiful venue and having it professionally filmed is a costly venture.  All donations will go to pay for the talent, the venue and the hefty production expenses. Help us ensure this event is recorded professionally so that the footage inspires people long into the future!! When you make a donation, you will not only be contributing to this life changing celebration of the creative spirit, you will also receive a heart-rendered gift of your choice, some from the artists themselves. ALL DONATIONS OF $50 OR MORE WILL RECEIVE A TICKET TO THE LIVE EVENT!

My Story

Hi! I'm the founder and producer of True Colors TV (TCTV), an inspirational online video network. For the past four years I have been interviewing women (and recently men) with inspiring stories of having created passionate, creative, fulfilling lives for themselves.

I began doing the interviews because, at the time, I felt bored with the routine of my life. I felt uncreative and desperately wanted to discover something I was passionate about. I deeply desired to express myself more freely and to access my own creativity, and so I began interviewing those who were living the kind of lives I dreamed of. I became enamoured by artists and the freedom they felt to express themselves in bold, uncompromising ways. 

The past four years have been a life class for me as I've interviewed dozens of artists, experimented with various artforms and found that my passions lie in dance and filming people's stories of transformation.

Today, I love my life! I've embraced my inner artist and let go of a lot of the limiting beliefs I had about myself that were preventing me from expressing my true self in the world. I am immersed in a number of creative endeavors including the True Colors TV network and this first TCTV live event on creative expression where I will share more of that journey with you!

About a year ago, I began to envision an event where I brought some of these amazing performers together to perform and speak about their, not often easy, artistic journeys. I really want the audience to experience the inspiration and freedom I feel when in the presence of these artists; to realize that we all have that seed of creative genius potential inside us and that, as Picasso once said, "We are all artists, we just forgot." I want this for you!

Welcome to Express Yourself! 2013!

That time has come! On May 24th, a couple weeks from now, 6 incredible performance artists will perform for a live audience in San Francisco (and online via live stream). I've gathered the most inspiring performers I could find to create a night of pure inspiration for you. I chose each artist not only because she had incredible talent, but also because she had a story we could all relate to. They all struggled before finding their passion and often took big detours in their lives before discovering their artform. Now they are masterful performers, each committed to inspiring the greatness in those they teach and coach.

The part of the evening I'm beyond excited about is after each performance the performer will engage with you, the audience, in a creativity exercise to help give you a taste of the emotional freedom and state of mind necessary to tap into your own inherent wellspring of creativity! 

My wish for all of you watching this event, is that you walk out utterly transformed and inspired to create the life you've only dared dream about!

The Artists!

Videos on each artist will be released each week leading up to the event. You can view them on the "Gallery" tab. You'll be able to watch the artists full video (American Idol style) at the event.
