Our First Art Journaling Course Begins On Monday! {come and see the sneak peek}

All of my courses come from an authentic place of walking through something, discovery and/or personal growth. One of the biggest lessons I learned creatively in 2015 was that it was time to really tell my story. To hold nothing back and to start letting it spill all over the page. There is art I have never shared and maybe art I will choose not to share. That is your freedom also. Getting your story out and letting it guide …
