Hi everyone. Sorry I haven't introduced myself yet. So here it goes.
I'm excited to get started on this. This is my first portrait moly exchange. Happiness!
I started visual journaling only recently (about 3 years ago) as a continuation of my journey towards self discovery. My first and still ongoing visual journal is called, Growing Pains. I am also almost done with Sabrina Ward Harrison's visual journal workbook, The True and The Questions.
I teach art history and aesthetics and I'm a book illustration category thesis adviser 4 days a week this semester. I love drawing every chance I get, I use watercolor, ink, watercolor crayons, color pencil, ephemeras, rubberstamps (bought and personally carved) on my visual journal pages. I also make cloth dolls and cloth sculptures and wirework jewelry and sculptures. I've recently started to make shrines and am at the moment exploring assemblage as a medium.
I'm looking forward to interacting with all of you. I've checked out your stuff and I find them all so refreshing, interesting and inspiring.
