I’ll be teaching a full day Diving Deep Intuitive Art Journaling workshop this Sunday at the Open Center in NYC. We will use acrylic paints to make smoky backgrounds, build patterns, draw, write, and create the most expressive journal pages. If you want to dive into your art journaling experience as more than making pretty pages and really see how art can be a transformative, mindful experience, this class is for you. There are a few spots still open if you want to join in on this experience. Cost is $145 or $115 for Open Center members. You can click the link to learn more. I am so excited to meet you in person! . . . . #nycart #artworkshop #theopencenter #divingdeep #mindfulartstudio #intuitivepaint #intuitivepainting #intuitiveart #artjournal #artjournalpages #artjournaltour #blindcontour #blindcontourdrawing #intuitivedrawing #sketchbooking #sketchbooks #journalart #mixedmediaart #transformativeart #expressiveart

Happy New Year Friends! I find that carrying a few art supplies in my purse is one of the essential ingredients in my art practice. Whether I’m standing in line at the grocery store, waiting for someone in the car, on vacation, or at a museum struck by inspiration, there are so many moments I am really glad to have a small sketchbook and a drawing ✍🏽 pen at hand. Carrying a small journal and a few pens and watercolor markers helps me sketch out ideas, take notes for future projects, and practice making little drawings✍🏽 and patterns when I have a few minutes of downtime, or inspiration strikes. When I need ideas, I can flip through my journal and see the ideas I’ve collected there. What helps you make more art? 🎨What’s in your portable art kit? 👉🏽You can find my favorites in the link in my profile. . .. . . #portableartkit #travelart #artandtravel #artkit #artjournal #artjournaling #artjournalpage #artjournaleveryday #journalart #sketchbook #sketchbookideas #sketching #dailysketch #sketchdaily #makeart #makearteveryday #artistmamas #dailyart #creativeselfcare #createeveryday

Here’s some work in progress photos from my latest piece. It’s been a long one and requires lots of breaks. I’ve also learned I sometimes need a string to help guide me in the direction of my leaf shapes. When you get far from the center it gets disorienting. I’m excited to see what happens around the edge of this one. Framing will be cool too. 🤓 .. . . . #papercutting #papercut #paperartist #paperart #papercutart #paperlove #organicart #abstractart #abstractartists #makersgonnamake #whiteart #patternart #patterndesign #organicpatterns #mindfulartstudio #mindfulart #xactoknife #createcultivate #creativemamas

Day after Christmas! 🎄 enjoying some free time paper cutting with the help of this awesome @biolite lantern. I got it for my husband for camping and while he was testing the different colors of light we realized it’s an excellent light for my paper cutting too!

Sometimes clean and simple feels so good. Still tinkering with these to see where they want to be. Also, thumb typing is the best I can do because I cut my finger the other day making small squares of paper for a workshop I’m planning. I wasn’t even paper cutting! 😱 it’s because I was rushing. Good reminder: slow down. Respect your materials and tools and they’ll respect you back. .. . . . . . #papercut #papercutout #papercuts #paperart #paperartist #papercrafts #papel #papelpicado #organicshapes #papercutting #papercraft #paperartwork #bostonartist #womenartists #womeninart #artistmama

This paper cutting adventure is pretty darn exciting. 🤩And I can’t wait to share all I’ve learned with you in the new year. 💃I’ve gotten a lot of questions about materials. There’s a post up in my linktree on my profile with a gift guide. You’ll find all my recommended paper cutting tools there-Knives and blades, paper, and all the rest. . . . . . #papercut #paperartist #papercutartist #paperart #papercutart #papercutting #paperlove #papel #papelpicado #papercrafts #papercuts #organicart #whiteart #organicshapes #organicart #papercutout

Whoa baby! I got to be honest, I am seeing a little 🥴 cross-eyed and my neck is sore. But today was all worth it, I made two pieces I am super excited about. I hope you are too! There’s so much to be found in each little piece of paper. I just find it so exciting to cut away and cut away until you reveal wants to be revealed in each sheet, no drawing. The knife really influences where you go. . . . . #papercut #papercutting #paperlove #organicart #organicshapes #whiteart #paperart #paperartist #paperartistcollective #makemakemake #makesrt #womenartists #artistcollective #legionpaper #xactoknife #creativemamas #creativewomen

What’s your favorite paint? I tend to love the extremes for my acrylics- either Liquitex or Galería heavy body or high flow. This is a pretty collection from my art pal @jenny_schneider what’s on your art table? . . . . #painting #paintandpaper #acrylicpaint #artisttools #artstudio #artiststudio #creativelife #createeveryday #makemakemake #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #womenartists

Here are my top 9 posts from 2018. I always love seeing the art from the year collected together because it reminds me how much I’ve grown and how much love and dedication I’ve put into my art over the year. That’s encouraging. We all need that! I would also say that this year I had a chance to teach some truly amazing artists in Diving Deep. Looking at these pieces reminds me of the immense gift that my work with you is. ❤️🎁❤️ I’ve also got a new post (link in profile) with the best Mindful Art Journaling resources I shared this year. I hope you enjoy it. .. . . . #mindfulart #mindfulartstudio #mindfulartjournaling #topnine #artjournalpages #artjournal #artjournaling #mixedmediajournal #carveouttimeforart #creativejournaling #visualjournaling #expressiveart #doitfortheprocess #visualstory #colorcrushcreative #ihavethisthingwithcolor #abmlifeiscolorful

This is a layered piece with Legion drawing and Yupo translucent papers. Cut with Xacto #11 blade.
