Welcome to Creative In A Cube!

How does this picture make you feel?

If you’re anything like me, this image conjures up a longing…longing for freedom from the confines of everyday life.

As an artist, this kind of freedom is something you crave. And yet, how do you act as both a responsible adult while also pursuing your dreams?

I created this blog to connect with other creative minds who are currently working a day job while they pursue their artistic dreams.

You’ll find everything from advice on surviving in the cubicle world, to musings on anxiety, giftedness, and sensitivity, to posts that will encourage you to express your most authentic self no matter where you are in your journey.

Sensitivity: Coping in the Workplace - It took a very long time for me to realize certain truths about myself. Sensitivity was not something I had seen as a particularly appealing trait.

You Are the Scribe - A story is an entity of its own. The characters will seek you out, coming straight from the depths of the creative universe, and ask you to complete a seemingly simple task: write their story. Record them on paper so that they can finally be seen and heard. Despite all…
