2014

My journals in 2014 continued in the same vein as 2013 – a mixture of drawing and torn paper collages. I also created a couple of canvas paintings and a gig flyer for Los Angeles band, Shmoe. It was an emotional and difficult year – I cut short a trip to LA in April due to my dad being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, my grandmother passed away in June, and I found out I had been selected for an internship in Los Angeles starting in September. The pages mainly document grief, being in limbo for 6 months, and a big move across the world. Scroll through to view select journal pages and art from 2014, from newest to oldest:

2011

In 2011 I continued experimenting with art journaling using prompts from books and Soul Journaling, Connie Solera‘s 21 Secrets and Total Alignment, and being inspired by Teesha Moore. I made journals out of cardboard and scrap paper and tried to find my style. Art journaling helped me through a move to Liverpool and my master’s degree.
