Busy, busy being creative..!

Who is the Creative Adventurer?




Hello and a big warm welcome to you!

I'm Morwhenna aka The Creative Adventurer and welcome to my Imaginarium!


This is my portal for all things creative; from my creative adventures, the courses/explorations I run and everything else relating to encouraging you to make positive and lasting changes for a more playful, creative and fulfilling life. 


I believe that we don't need to travel far to experience something new and inspiring and that adventure is all around us, we just need to look at things from a different perspective to find it. I found that reconnecting with my creative and adventurous self was a huge part in my recovery from severe depression and that Creativity, Adventure & Nature are instrumental to my wellbeing. This philosophy now forms the basis of everything I do and If I can do it - you can do it.

10 random things about me..
  1. My all-time favourite film is Singing in the Rain. I've seen the stage musical twice.
  2. I've been featured in Psychologies Magazine (hence the pic above) July 2017 Issue
  3. I've appeared in the TV show Casualty as an extra...still trying to get onto Dr.Who!
  4. I had a Brain Hemorrhage in 1987 (form of stroke) when I was 12. I was completely paralyzed down my left side and had to learn to walk again. I know, right!!
  5. I'm Bionic(ish). I'm fitted with a walking implant called a STIMuStep which helps me to walk as I have a condition called Drop Foot (result of the stroke)
  6. I'm the first person to walk over 100 miles and to climb Snowdon (the highest Mountain in Wales) not during the same trip, whilst using my walking implant!
  7. I've cycled 256 miles from Paris to Portsmouth over three and a half days for charity on a mountain bike (crazy) with a specially adapted pedal 
  8. I took part in the Scumrun car rally to Barcelona – but was sick the whole time ;-(
  9. I've spent 6 weeks on a solo trip volunteering with Art Relief International in Chiang Mai, Thailand. 
  10. I love going to the theatre, especially anything created/performed by Kneehigh

    2. Hey Morwhenna - I didn't realize you're a Brit! I took it for granted that you'd be American. And you live in my part of the world! I'm in Alton, Hampshire, just up the road from you. You're a creative adventurer, and I aspire to be one. I'm 62 and I'm an artist, writer, wild westerner(www.kitty-le-roy.co.UK) and traveller.I was v surprised to read about your health problems. I've only recently recovered from 30 years of depression, so am now making up for lost time. One of my aspirations - apart from visiting my 20th country and finish the novel I've been writing forever- was to be a film/TV extra, but I'm certain I'd never make the early morning starts! Anyway, excellent to find out you're in my neck of the woods. I'm currently UNsubscribing from a zillion newsletters, but yours is a keeper!
