Coming in June 2022!
Collage Your Life: Techniques, Prompts, and Inspiration for Creative Self-Expression and Visual Storytelling evolved out of my daily practice. Pre-order it here.
So what is my daily practice?
Most mornings after I wake-up and brush my teeth, I sit down with a cup of coffee and I update my Visual Diary. Then, I do one of two things. I either read a piece of writing/listen to a guided meditation and create a visual response or I make a small 5×5 inch collage. It is these collages that form the foundation of Collage Your Life.
For two years I created a drawing based on a writing and somehow incorporated a tracing of my hands. Read more about that here. One year I read a daily entry from Anita Barrow’s and Joanna Macy’s great translation of Rilke’s work in A Year with Rilke and drew right into the book. You can see a bit about that here.
