Featured in This Episode
Krista Kankula (she/her) is a Creativity Facilitator & Coach, and she is all about helping creatives get to the truth of what they MOST want to create in this next season of their business and creative practice so they can turn their piles of ideas into creative work they’re proud of. Krista can usually be found making messes with paint, gathering inspiration from Mother Nature, or cuddling with her four cats, dog, and partner. She believes we all have imaginative ideas and boundless creativity within each of us and that those ideas and our collective creativity are needed now, more than ever. You can keep up with Krista on her website, Instagram, and Pinterest.
