The Author

Nancy Marie is a driving force for self-actualization and the creator of the I Create What I Believe! Self-Awareness Art Program (ICWIB) – which is based on the research of Dr. Lipton. Her academic background is in the fields of art and movement, though her longtime fascination has been the mind. Specifically, she has focused on how stress and our early childhood experiences affect the mind and one’s ability to succeed. This life-long pursuit, and the creation of the ICWIB program were inspired by her own trauma, learning challenges, and subsequent healing.

Nancy is also the author and illustrator of three other books: Out of the Box and Into Yourself!, Passage of Change, A fable based on the research of Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., and The Beckoning Song of Your Soul, A Guidebook for Developing Your Intuition.

Ms. Marie is the current director of Inner Eye Publishing and the past director of The Wizard of Us – a children’s magazine written and illustrated by and for children. She has also been leading creative and intuitive development workshops for over 30 years and is a firm believer that creative self-expression can promote healing, help you gain a greater sense of self, and help you create a joyous life.
