Judith Zausner is a creativity advocate. She explores a wide range of interests from eccentric concepts to simple ideas, from very talented individuals to hesitant newbies. However, her primary interest is empowering creativity for disabled people and within that focus is her dedication to helping the aging population.

All the essays, including several award winners, and interviews in this book were written in her Creativity Matters blog: In addition to writing, she provides talks  and workshops and creates craft kit designs with safety guidelines for her business Caring Crafts. Judith has two adult children and lives in Philadelphia.

Judith Zausner is a gifted teacher, writer and commentator who illuminates the life and work of artists who have changed the way the rest of us see the world. Her insights and passions sweep away confusion and promote clarity.  Imagine a wiser—and more sophisticated—older sister whispering in your ear, as the two of you embark on a great journey together.
