Greetings! My name is Kaecey McCormick, and I'm an award-winning language and visual artist located in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I can't remember a time when I didn't live half in this world and half in the worlds of make-believe with interesting characters inside my head. As a young child, you could find me with my nose in a book or leading a crowd of my friends on a made-up adventure,.
Visual art is a natural extension of my creative streak, and I'm rarely without my art supplies - even when on the go. I work intuitively and change my tools and materials when it feels right. Currently, I'm into mixed media collage and painting.
It took me some time to get to this creative space with many bumps and stops along the way, but I'm now fortunate to spend my days putting words on the page and paint and on paper. You can read more about my work below.
Creativity has shaped my life, and I know the tremendous power that comes from unlocking your creative potential. Nothing brings me more joy than guiding other people to their creative key.
As Poet Laureate for my home city, I helped hundreds of people express and celebrate their creativity through community programming. I'm committed to continuing my mission of helping ignite creativity in others.
I'm an experienced teacher, workshop facilitator, public speaker, and coach. Whether you're looking for one-on-one help letting creativity into your life, are an organization seeking to develop your team's innate creativity, or in need of a public speaker, I can help.
When not creating or teaching, I enjoy volunteering with community organizations and people dedicated to making our world a better place and spending time outdoors exploring California's beautiful parks and beaches.
