I have worked in a lot of different areas in my life, but art journaling has always been my passion.
I use many different mediums. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own individual style. There are no rules where my paper or canvas is concerned, other than to make sure it doesn't bleed into each other and make a mess, but than again, there is GESSO to start over. I usually use at least 2 mediums in each project. Mix it up some, let go. Use crayons, paints, inks, pencils, watercolors, use it all in a single piece. PLAY!
I enjoy the outside, my animals, the colors of the seasons,and many of my pieces are directly influenced by these observations. I love recreating life experiences in my work, even when there are some down sides.
Art is a release for me, I suffer from multiple symptoms and Art or Journaling is definitely a release for me. I will even art out my pain.
