Le  Mode de Vie Créatif

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.

- Pablo Picasso

Creative self expression comes in many colors, shapes and sizes. When it is fully lived, joy and happiness abound.

Here we showcase seven Ocalans who make the artistic narrative a way of life and take a look at their “le mode de vie créatif”…creative lifestyle..

L' Artiste - Jordan Shapot

“Everyday I wake up excited to go to work on my paintings. I love what I do and am so grateful that this is my profession.”

La Chanteuse - Olivia Ortiz

“I enjoy the creative process and everything it brings. It’s like electricity running through your body. When it’s on, it works. When it’s not on, you go and turn on another switch.”

Le Professeur - Tyrus Clutter

“The act of creating is a process of self discovery...creating artwork enables me a deeper understanding of my students’ abilities and my own purpose in this world."

La Professionnel - Victoria Billig

“Keeping current in the arts, whether it be in visual arts, culinary arts, fashion or literature inspires me to bring new ideas to the Appleton and influences my personal life as well.”

La Danceur - Erin Buss

“By teaching our students the art of dance and performance and watching as they discover their own unique gifts, my hope is that they will share their talents and encourage others.”

La Journaliste - Amy Davidson

“Everyone has a story which I love to explore and write about. If my writing can be an escape for the reader for just five minutes, then I have succeeded.”

La Chef - Kim Jones

“What inspires me is seeing my growth as a chef and a baker. I love presenting cakes that are as much of an art form as they are a science.”
