What You'll Find Here

I post daily (photos of my journal pages, things that inspire me and personal bits and pieces) to inspire and encourage others. I have always believed that if I can do it, so can you.

You'll find resources (my favorite supplies, books, slideshows of my art journal pages, favorite bloggers, etc...) listed along the right hand side of my blog.

I've been teaching both in person and online workshops for more than twenty years. You can find out more about my classes by scrolling down along the right hand side of my blog. I strive to make classes accessible to everyone (both beginner to advanced).

I love teaching and truly believe that deep down inside everyone is an artist, capable of creating something. There is power and knowledge in the act of creating something with your own hands, made from your own heart and head.

25 May 2015 Journal Page

AFI Fest started the other day. David and I missed the first night because we went to Vromans in Pasadena to meet Garth Risk Hallberg and have him sign his new book, City on Fire. I always enjoy author signings and out of the three fiction signings we've been to this year, his was definitely the best. He amused me as I was picking out a copy of the book by saying, "If you buy it, I'll sign it." 

Last night we saw two films at AFI, The Lobster and Macbeth. Both were interesting and while far from being big favorites, worth seeing on the big screen. The Lobster was quite funny and while not perfect, I did enjoy it. Macbeth is gorgeous and visually stunning. They took some liberty with the story which didn't really add much to it (nor did they need it) but the colors and images are rich. Just remember, it is Macbeth, and it is quite bloody!

Heading off soon to get in line for our film tonight. We have tickets to see both Hitchcock/Truffaut as well as Michael Moore's new film, Where to Invade Next. I'm thinking Moore is going to win out as he's in town to promote the film and we've never seen him in person before. Should make for an interesting night either way!
