Incorporating the practice of art journaling into my life as an artist has allowed me grow in new and unexpected ways!
In all my classes, my intention is to openly share my own personal practice as an artist, so that it inspires you to build your own practice with more confidence.
Because this is all about growing YOUR wings and making YOUR art.
More than ever, this is what this class is about. Through the projects I'll be sharing, what I really want to give you are creative processes that you can apply and adapt to your own practice, your own favorite techniques and style.
You will really be with me in my studio and I'll share everything that's going on as I create, including:
Plus of course I'll be sharing a ton of fun activities and techniques for art journaling and painting, including:
The class is organized in 3 parts and is completely self-paced: there is no time-frame to complete any of the lessons and it's all about tuning in to your own rhythm. You have lifetime access.
If you are new to art journaling, my advice is to really take the time to build your practice and create several pages in your journal, before diving into Part 3.
Invite your muse to play! This part of the class is a well of inspiration with lots of tutorials to give you a solid foundation for art journaling or refresh your existing practice. Let's get playful and messy!
This second part of the class is all about creating in our journal. We will honor the magic of the creative process and explore intuition and intention through the making of two art journal spreads:
A very intuitive spread with collage and cut-out words. This project is really about tuning in to our emotions and our inner stories, and let spontaneity and curiosity take the lead.
A more intentional spread where we start with an idea and let it morph along the way. In this project we will honor the magic of the creative process.
It's time to take the leap! This part of the class is a deep dive into mixed media painting!
I will first share some ideas about how you can use your art journal for inspiration + creative tips to plan your painting while letting the door open to intuition.
Then you will be by my side every step of the way as I create a large painting inspired by the combination of two pages from my journal!
NB: In this painting project you will see me really challenge myself to overcome one of my biggest art fears (and desires): painting in red! My hope is that by witnessing first hand how I deal with it all, you will feel inspired and more confident to grow your wings in new ways and rise to your own challenges.
I will be there to answer your questions and cheer you on as you grow your beautiful wings! (seats are limited so that I can truly be available to support you on your journey)
You will be invited to gather with hundreds of like-minded creatives from all over the world in our private Facebook group, a safe place to share, encourage and learn from each other!
I walk my artist’s path in bare feet with my face toward the starry sky. I create from a place of lightness, ease and not-so-ordinary magic. Following the soft voice of my inner guide has shaped the artist I am today.
As a child, imagination and creativity were my sanctuary, and it was always that which I made with my hands that delighted my spirit and made me the most proud.
Today I find joy and a sense of true purpose in not only bringing beauty into this world through the art that I make, but also in nurturing the creative longings of others. As an online art instructor and certified creativity coach, I’m grateful to be able to share the gift of inspiration each and every day.
Through all extensions of my work, I aim to capture the whispers of fairytales, the lighthearted beauty of imperfection and myriad emotions through layers of light. It’s my heart’s desire to connect to that deep place that resides within you and is simultaneously in every one of us—that inner knowing of the soul which you can’t put into words but feel is more true than anything else you know...
I love connecting with creative souls all over the world on a daily basis. When I’m away from the studio or my computer, I enjoy spending quality time with my husband, William, and our two children in the Loire Valley of France where not a day goes by that I’m not inspired by the sheer beauty of my surroundings.
I'm delighted to share this free tutorial from the class! In this video I'm showing you the simple technique I use to make an art journal from a pad of watercolor paper. It will allow you to create a nice, sturdy journal that takes wet media really well and opens flat from the first page to the last! You will also find a ready-made option in the supplies list.
