Art Journaling "Big Girl Style" I've decided that It's time for me to keep an art journal. My goal is to challenge myself to create and get new ideas on a regular basis, using quality products! That's why I'm calling this my "Big Girl Art Journal". An early Christmas Gift From Thom:) He has always been my biggest fan! Even if Art to him is just a guys name!
This piece is created on a 9x12 140# Strathmore Watercolor Mixed Media Journal. Using Grumbacher Acrylic Paints, Tombow Dual Brush Pens and Studio Matte Medium for glazing.
I was born and raised in southern Michigan. I'm blessed with three children, two boys and a girl that range in age from 22-30. I've been married to a wonderful man for the last 24 years. He's been very supportive of my art and has always encourged my artistic pursuits. Even though I have a fine arts degree I still consider myself largely a self taught mixed media artist. Inspiration for my art comes from many different places. Old family photos, my children, pets, and especially our garden, it's a passion that both Thom and I share.
