Stories That Inspire Us / The Author Series with Kristina Lucia - 03.15.23

Stories That Inspire Us / The Author Series, welcomed to today’s podcast, Kristina Lucia.  Kristina is an artist, creator, and author of Curiously Created Creations of Kristina Lucia.  Her touching storybooks, the Bella Lucia Book Series, ignite the imaginations of children and their parents through her limited edition animals and also improves communication and deepen their relationships between parent and child.

Her humble beginnings in a small farm town (there was only one traffic light!) sparked her creativity at a young age and her adopted home of New York City keeps her inspired daily.  She may have started out with humble beginnings but it wasn’t until several dramatic life events occurred that she realized she had to pivot and perhaps in a way that she did not anticipate.

After a layoff and injury, she realized that she had this amazing portfolio between her crocheting and story writing.  Although the possibility of starting her own creative business was doubted by many naysayers, Kristina in no way doubted her ability to realize her dream!

From working on Wall Street during the day to dancing at night (I know, how does one go from Wall Street to dancing at night!) she always knew that her creativity was more like a puzzle; a map she had to follow even though that pay may have been unknown she knew where it would lead to!  She freely stated that “my creativity saved me!”

Mind you, along the way and from further trauma she experienced, she ultimately new that through everything, she had to embrace the process and her recommendation for those who may be in the same place in their lives will know to follow that healing journey and to open your heart and soul!

Kristina currently has 3 Bella Lucia Book Series out and in total has another 12 in the works!  Between her (2) blogs and working on the animation of her books, she wholeheartedly embraces her inner child and that is just amazing to see!

Kristina has a special gift for my listeners and viewers!  Do you have a child who loves to color or perhaps YOU love to color!!  Check out her free gift below:
