WWW.CTABOIS.COM provides artistic renderings (drawings, paintings, photographs, music, sculpture) and writings (poetry, short stories, novels, and a comic strip) to the public. Also, it offers opportunities, via membership in IASPAW, for Artists, Photographers, Musicians, and Writers to display their creative work on this website.


International Association of Self-Proclaimed Artists and Writers

IASPAW was formed on Friday, June 22, 2007, on a clear, sunny day in McLean, Virginia. IASPAW is being converted to a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.


Provide recognition to Self-proclaimed Artists and Writers, poets, photographers, musicians, and other creative souls, worldwide exposure for their talent, artistic renderings, and writings, which are largely unrecognized and unknown to the public.

IASPAW was founded on the premise that many talented artists and writers go unrecognized and unappreciated for their creative contribution to society, and thus, need a venue for artistic exposure in order to continue their creative contributions. iASPAW provides the venue and its credential comes from within, from one's feeling of creative self-worth. With support from a communion of fellow artists and writers, in the same circumstance, this association can collectively foster a renaissance of artistic expression through self-proclamation worldwide.


Have Artists, Photographers, Poets, Musicians, and Writers, aspiring, emerging, or established, share their creativity openly and freely through participation in IASPAW.


Recognize and support the artistic spirit and quest for creative expression.

Provide inspiration for creative endeavors through this website.

Promote understanding by sharing creative work across cultures.


All donations to IASPAW will be used to defray the cost of establishing an IASPAW website, developing content, and arranging events to further the goals of the association, including supporting exhibitions, performance, and readings by IASPAW members.
