Jennifer Shiman, animator and cartoonist

After taking a “sabbatical” from my primary creative work to complete a few of “my
own secondary creative projects,” and to care for my daughter, my goal on entering the Creative Focus Workshop was to hitting the ground running by fall, to figure out who I am as a creative professional, and how I want to or can bring in an income again.

My One Goal took longer than I expected, but it’s done! And I feel like I have transformed my creative process for the better and given it the space and honor it deserves in my life. I can align/assign my creative time for how life happens/how I work best. And then I will actually get the work done. That feels really good. I am so glad to have taken this course. It helped me when I really needed it.
