Art Jounal spread in process. 12-2-18

Today was about connecting. With others and with myself. I spent the day at Way Art Yonder studio in Jamul, CA just outside San Diego. They were having an Open Studio/Pop-Up Shop and invited me to come sell some paintings and stay to create during their free open studio time. There were many familiar faces and many new ones. I felt warmly welcomed and accepted by the group of creative artists gathered there. I am excited to share that I will be teaching a few art journaling workshops there in 2019! Check out their website wayartstudio.com to see the full lineup of awesome artists teaching there and get on their mailing list. I hope you found some time and space to connect today, with others and yourself.

This is the creative space and time you are seeking…

This is the creative process you desire…


A circle has no beginning or end, it is a continuous flow of energy. Circles in our lives intersect and evolve over time. Uncover and be witness to the inner circles in your life by letting your story unfold on the pages of your art journal. Spend time discovering yourself using creative prompts in writing, painting, drawing and collage.

Art journaling is a powerful way to re-connect with your soul, set your creative spirit free and express yourself. Playfully creating builds trust in your creative process.

Generally known to be a symbol for concealing your ego, masks can also be a symbol for revealing your inner dreams and desires.

Make plans to create symbolic masks on your art journal pages that guide your reflection inward and uncover your hidden treasures. Using creative prompts in writing, painting, drawing, collage and more, you will unmask yourself to reveal your true inner beauty. Let this be the creative space and time you are seeking… Let this be the creative process you desire…

Art journaling is a powerful way to re-connect with your soul, set your creative spirit free and express yourself. Playfully creating builds trust in your creative process.
