Art journaling is a creative conversation with yourself.
I’m passionate about art journaling and have been journaling for 20 years it has really helped me get through some difficult times and I believe helped change my negative self talk and inner critic. I visual journal my thoughts and feelings and am authentic and honest with myself.
We art journal to get out whats in our heads onto the page.
It a creative and mindful way to process, self discover and build self esteem. We use it to make sense of this world and our thoughts.
This is a fabulous thing to do to clear away the humdrum, thoughts and worries!
I run a variety of Creative Well Being workshops and Retreats to help combat stress, anxiety and also have creative fun I have a background working with Mind Charity Solend Mind as a project worker in art and wellbeing activities. As a qualified childcarer I love using my creativity to have fun and connect.

We use mixed media, mindfulness and lots of other fun techniques to self discover and shift ourselves to experience the outside world differently. Its about exploring, letting go of control and inhibitions and putting trust in yourself and the process.
My creativity is about collecting ideas, half a century old pieces of paper, making collage work, exploring encaustic wax, wooden letter press, dripping colours in wax and spreading beautiful blues.
After my art degree I worked as an illustrator and graphic designer in London. I love mixed media, print, and the immediacy of collage, stencilling and stamping, My work has been sold and shown through galleries and exhibitions in London and France.
I have a daily routine art journaling which involves working in up cycling old books using old bits of paper, magazine and using my visual diaries emotionally and creatively.
