The Back Story
Raised with a paintbrush, crochet needle, or sculpting dough in hand, JoDee inherited her creative mind from her Italian mother, who JoDee sees as a master of living comfortably with shifting creative rhythms.
JoDee’s own creative shifts took her to the Netherlands as an early adult, where she worked as a leader with a creative arts urban mission. Her artistic quests led and comforted her through a divorce, a long period of single parenthood, a journey back to school, a career as a teacher, and currently an instructional coach for the Lancaster School District.
During her free time today, you will find JoDee painting, gardening, blogging, dabbling in mixed media, crafting hand-made masks, writing, shooting photos, arranging flowers, dancing, or collaborating with her daughters on any of the above. When she’s not creating, she is most likely sleeping…and dreaming about the next project.
Her book, Refrain from the Identical: Insight and Inspiration for Creative Eclectics, features helpful hints and inspirational reflections for artistic multi-taskers and her creativity website, http://refrainfromtheidentical.com, provides diy projects and inspirational posts.
