Jolie is an artist, a teacher, a storyteller. Daily rituals and frequent collaboration with others energize her and fuel her creativity. Back in 2010, she set a goal to paint 100 paintings in 100 days. Instead she kept the project going for three and a half years, sharing stories along with the paintings. In January 2014, Jolie created her 1000th painting, Soulwork, ending this project—but not the ritual of daily creativity. You'll find her these days with a daily photo on Instagram.

Jolie's book, Beauty Everywhere: A Portable Gallery, published in 2012, features 100
of her favorite paintings and their stories. In 2013, her good friend, fellow artist Jen Lee, featured her in the film, Indie Kindred, exploring the possibility and potential of creative collaboration.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
