About

What makes for a happy life?   Many of the skills we need to be happy were never taught to us—things like staying close and intimate in our marriage, finding creative fulfillment (so we’re not angry or disconnected in our life), and managing our money in a simple way so we have daily peace of mind.  These skills are the bedrock of a happy life.  Once we learn them, we’re free to discover all of the things our heart wants to pursue.

“Shortcuts to Happiness” is a practical approach to living well—tips, ideas and strategies that help us build a life we love, in the real world.  This approach inspired my three self-help books: Naked Marriage: How to Have a Lifetime of Love, Sex, Joy and Happiness (2018); secondly, How to Be an Artist Without Losing Your Mind, Your Shirt, or Your Creative Compass; and The Debt-Free Spending Plan, a five-minute-a-day approach to easy money clarity.

That’s what I share in my books, my life coaching, my artistry, and my blog. Welcome to An Artistry Life and the easy-on-the-soul world of Shortcuts to Happiness!
