Do you love to create with abandon? Do you enjoy working with non-traditional art tools? As an artist that has a deep passion for both I am happy to share my newest miniature journal with you - UNBOXED: A REPURPOSED JOURNAL.

day one body1

Come paint, mark, and etch alongside of me as we create a journal that boasts a richly painted and art-marked cover complete with chunky recycled signatures. As we build the book, we will talk about color, repurposed tools, layering, art marks, and how allowing our work to unfold organically can teach us more about how to recognize ourselves in our work. As we create alongside of one another we will learn to embrace the movement in our work as we explore layering color with my favorite mark-making techniques.

day one body2

Paint your way into new ideas as we unearth the secret to painting in reverse, and practice the art of covering things up. Watch as, layer after layer, your journal comes to life and you discover the joy of working small. As a bonus you will create a box that complements your journal and can hold all of your favorite art tools for easy on-the-go creating!
