About Spark Talks at The Met

Wonderful response to my Spark Talk at The Met conversation with Game of Thrones costume designer Michele Clapton, artist Miya Ando, and Met curator Pierre Terjanian.  There were articles in The Guardian, International Business Times, and New York Magazine.

Praise for Spark: How Creativity Works

From Vanity Fair

From Publisher's Weekly

"Through enlightening conversations, these creative individuals demonstrate how they lift raw materials out of familiar contexts and create art that changes how we perceive the world."

In the Philadelphia Inquirer

"Spark is a beautiful book, enjoyable and filled with life.  It will, however, demand a special kind of reading.  The first time, straight through; the stories require it.  And then again and again, each story one at a time as meditations where you will find yourself contemplating the origin of the little lights, the sparks, which show themselves only when someone special looks within."

In the Detroit Free Press

"How better to learn about creativity than to talk with some of the world's most creative people."
