Darylynn Starr Rank (most people call her Dari) is a writer, a therapist, and a creativity consultant. In addition to The Art of Becoming an Artist, she has written newspaper columns, short stories, novels, screenplays, poetry, and articles, both published and unpublished, and journals, journals, journals. In her clinical practice she works with a wonderful array of creative clients: artistic beings of many sorts. Artists are her specialty.
As a creativity consultant, she gives a massive number of talks, lectures, seminars, workshops, courses, professional development training, private classes, weekend intensives, and online tutorials, all dedicated to the pursuit of our creative process. She presents her programs in universities, colleges, non-profit organizations, businesses, (including one of the largest computer game designers in the world), hospitals, social service associations, community centers, her living room, on the shore of one of the loveliest lakes in British Columbia, at a tropical retreat in the Florida Keys – any kind of venue you can imagine.
The combination of being a writer and a therapist, and of having once been seriously screwed up, is what led to the unique vision she has developed for her workshops and courses...this vision has now been happily distilled into The Art of Becoming An Artist.
