Hello Creative Queen Bee, 

My name is Amanda O’Bryan, I am the founder of Creative Queen Bees.

I started drawing in watercolour #dailyactsofcreativity and sharing them on Instagram many years ago as a way to open my heart, curiosity and connection to personal creativity. It helped me practice everyday creativity as a way of life, at work and at home.

By doing ‘Daily Acts Of Creativity’ I discovered the way to a happy, healthy, creative life was not through one big idea or major breakthrough. I discovered the accumulative effect of everyday, intentional acts of creativity was a way to build purpose with meaning, a way to realise my full creative potential and build confidence.  ‘Daily Acts Of Creativity’ is an approach to life that builds a foundation for a happy, healthy, creative life AND the good news is, we all have this ability.

Fast forward a few years and I started writing ‘Daily Acts Of Creativity’ as a book in the hope of healing and self love for myself. In 2017 out of a clear blue sky I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. It was during my recovery I would write in my daily journal.

The book first found it’s way into the pages of my daily journal in the form of little paragraphs, abstract ideas and thoughts, lists of things to make and do based on my 20+ years of experience as a creative professional, but it was the everyday things that helped my healing process the most. My journal became my own personal guidebook, my thoughts and words about how I approach life and how I planned to live a long, happy, healthy, creative life full of love.

Through my own ‘Daily Acts of Creativity’ I have been able to make, play, create, journal and explore healing, love and a sense of meaning and purpose in life. As a result I have re-framed my creativity as a spiritual practice in the manifestation of love.

This book will help you do the same – it will help you to connect with your own unique, personal creativity, discover your true natural gifts and talents and be your creative, authentic self – the person you were born to be.  

With much ♥ Amanda O’Bryan

I spend my days drinking way too much tea, working from my studio in the back garden our 1910 Australian Federation house. I live in a quiet little village called Lorn on the Hunter River in Maitland, NSW.

Most days I work on commissioned design, art and illustration for my lovely clients, plus the daily work of a studio art practice.

Daily Acts of Creativity is a fantastic read for anyone in need of discovering their potential or reigniting their creative spark. Written with heart and soul this beautifully illustrated book is full of easy and actionable steps into how to start, what it means to be creative and how to use creativity to live your best life. I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in letting go of their inner critic and embracing their inner creative.

If one word could capture the essence of Amanda O’Bryan’s “Daily Acts Of Creativity“ it would be love. Each of these fun, soulful activities asks us to take a little bit of time to listen, see, feel, sense & experience life – to breathe in our lives instead of rushing past them. By choosing to do the activities you resonate with you’ll discover that creativity isn’t about producing a work of art; it’s about play and taking time to acknowledge & love ourselves. 
In “Daily Acts of Creativity“ Amanda has thoughtfully chosen creative activities to help us reconnect with the world around us so we can discover the world within. To make space in our busy lives to bee”.

I’m proud of my friend Amanda and the release of her new book. This means a bias review 🙂 and, it also means that as her friend, I can vouch for her heart, her integrity and the intention she has for this book and you the reader. Amanda wants to help people in the world to get in touch with their creativity. This book is a beautiful introduction filled with sparks of love and fun and play. I loved reading it and I know you will too.

Just what I needed to kickstart my year! My creativity always seems to take a back seat, for “when I have time” so of course never happens.  This will allow me to pick out a fave activity once a week and actually get started. Thanks Amanda, I love the book, your ideas are fabulous! You’ve inspired me 🙂
