My art journaling style has heavy emphasis on the use of words, real journaling stuff. I see art as an extension of expression of the heart, but not the only expression. My art journal is a safe place to make art without needing to please an audience, worry about judgment. It's very therapeutic for me.
I am a social worker, and am designing a program of therapy that will heavily incorporate the use of art journaling for those who want to explore this medium. I hope to share these skills and philosophies with others in the art and therapy worlds through workshops, websites, and other connections.
