Somewhere along the road from childhood to adulthood we often lose our creative spark.

What I enjoy doing most is providing your group with a mix of activities to help them realize their creative potential. Attendees of my workshops are often surprised by how simple it is to bring out their creativity and have fun in the process. This doesn't just happen—You have to make it happen.

“When people aren’t having any fun, they seldom produce good work.” David Ogilvy

“In Project 52, Maria Gatling has figured out a way to make creativity accessible to every single person, regardless of innate talent or time restraints. Activities are simple enough for those who are quick to say, ‘I'm not creative,’ but spark dynamic thought in artists and designers, as well.” Linda Battson

As a creativity workshop facilitator, I motivate and teach people ways to embrace a creative perspective in everyday life through the use of both traditional and digital mediums.

Professional Stats: Over 30 years experience in art—graphic design—publishing and hold a BA in Visual Arts from the University of Texas at Pan American.

Fun Stats: You can find me and my husband starting our day with a cup of coffee on our back porch in Leander, TX. You may see me on my daily walk or at the park with one or more of my 3 grandchildren. Most afternoons I've got my music blasting, creating, dreaming and doodling. I am always open to art, travel and a good laugh.
