Creative Mornings Seattle invites you to experience Kyle Kesterson’s speaking engagement all about action and the impact that art and creative expression had on his life.
Tickets for this event are sold out, but if you wish to attend you may join the waitlist in hopes to hear Kesterson’s lecture on ACTION.

Summer is in full swing and to celebrate that, we invited a local artist to show her very colorful array of paintings. Aptly titled “Sparkly/Shiny”, this show “celebrates the triumph of human spirit over diversity”.
During dark times, Cariña Booyens realized that a human spirit can come close to be broken. Despite all odds, it was during a period of abuse in a destructive relationship that the paintings in this series was born.
These iridescent and luminescent works are the products born from a spirit that decided to create instead of lie down and die.
From the darkness came a sparkle. From there she realized she will never let anyone ever again dull her shine.
