Ella and Clara Klein - Sandi’s Granddaughters

Meeting and getting to know so many creative women got me to thinking: why not start a bit younger - really younger? And so… I reached out to a pair of creative girls who I know very well: Ella and Clara Klein, my 7-1/2 and 5-1/2 year old granddaughters! Creativity is second nature to these two. They love to paint, draw, work with clay, make their own pinatas, read, write their own stories and plays, and work on special projects with their very creative parents. So join me for CWCW's first ever conversation with the 'younger set.'

This is a first for me - having a conversation with a creative woman in Moscow! Inna Blokhina, a journalist who worked at several major Russian television networks, also happens to be a filmmaker. She formed her own company, "Inwaves Production," and in 2012 completed her first full-length documentary, ON THE WAVE. Believe it or not....it's all about...surfing in the Soviet Union! Who knew? That was followed by her latest film, the award-winning SHE IS THE OCEAN. It follows 9 women from around the world, whose profound love for the ocean, is the 'tie that binds.' Plenty to talk about with this female force of nature!
