Starting your art journal means starting a practice of creative self-care. We all get stressed out, sad, frustrated, and confused. Understanding your feelings and your needs doesn’t have to be a drag. You can “art it out.” Journals are not just for writing anymore!


Using color, symbols, images, and shapes, you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to explore, express, and de-stress. Creative self-care is accessible to anyone who is willing to let go, get a bit messy, and play.

With easy to follow tutorials and color photos, I share the tools that will help you create the “vocabulary” with which you’ll express your unique, creative voice. The Starting Your Art Journal e-book will help you learn to paint, draw, and scribble to express and transform what’s on your mind and in your heart.


Art journaling brings me joy and helps me find meaning. Art journaling is my safe place, an unbiased listener, and my artistic playground. Sharing with you about tools you need for starting your art journal makes it even more meaningful!

Please join our community of creative people who use these fun, expressive techniques to process their feelings and find peacefulness in art making. I can’t wait to connect with you and see your playful explorations!
