Hi! We are David and Joan Raymond.
Founders of Creative Roots Foundation.


David and I understand the frustration of pursuing a creative project without knowing the steps to get started. Then, when supplies, support, and ongoing mentorship were beyond our means, we doubted ourselves and our dreams. We felt isolated, which stifled our creativity.

As compassionate souls mentored us, we began working with creatives, encouraging them to reignite their passion projects. Forming Creative Roots Foundation is our way of paying it forward to those who encouraged and inspired us. After all, we are all connected through our roots of empathy and creativity.

David and I, along with a team of warm-hearted, talented mentors, are looking forward to coming alongside you as you pursue your interests. Whether it’s Art, Genealogy, Music, Poetry, or Writing, or something else all together, we’re here to help you hone your skills, quiet your negative voice, and pursue your creative endeavors, regardless of your income or means.

Pursue your passion. Transform your life.

David and Joan
