A page I did while working with someone on art journaling for healing.


Sometimes I feel like a stopper has been put on my creative bottle and someone shook me up. I am about to burst. This is my need to create…something. It must be innate in all of us this urge to create and/or produce. The release can be subtle or explosive – a consistent fizz or a champagne pop. I’ve observed it’s also attached to my mood or current events in my life. Art is emotional – it releases emotions of  the artist. It provokes emotion from the viewer . A fizzle or a pop – it’s all reaction and it matters.



Visual represent the “zone” you are in when creating. How do you feel before? During? After? What does creating satisfy in you?
