Writers Guild Foundation: Veterans Writing Project

Beginning  May 14, 2016,  I was chosen for a year’s tutelage with the Writers Guild Foundation in Beverly Hills. The Foundation is attached to the Writers Guild of America, who represent screenwriters & playwrights nationally.  I was fortunate enough to be one of only 50 people selected from applications that were received all across the US.

I can not express the gratitude I have for being part of the Writers Guild Foundation 2016 Veterans Writing Project. Two days alone was life changing, can’t look forward to what the rest of the year brings! Thank you Final Draft with gifting each participant with a one year subscription of Final Draft 9!

Studio Visit Magazine Feature

Bay Area fine artist Uriél Dana is featured in the Winter Edition of Studio Visit Magazine, Volume 32. Her oil paintings are inspired by San Francisco’s nouveau cirque culture. Uriél has said, “These are not just people in costume but represent a rich array of human talents that incorporate theater, literature, aerobics, dance, poetry and above all, mystery.” Humor and whimsy are also added to brighten the mood for what many consider dark times.

“For over three decades I have been known as a surrealist painter. I have also been a practitioner of Tibetan Dream Yoga since childhood as a way to control a sleeping disorder. Surrealism is defined as the mixture of two realities not normally found side by side. These two paths are intimately intertwined for me. This is how I have lived my entire life.

In 2011 I consciously began to paint people I think of as “living surrealists”. These are real people reinventing new ways to see the world. I paint them to inspire others to unleash their creativity and as a reminder to all that we can create our own, positive reality.”
