In 2009, I created a series of 25 sets of 16.5in x 12in pages mounted on wood with routered edges matching the perforations in each page. That year, I also created a number of other smaller series of visual journal pages, mounted in a similar manner onto solid woodblocks.
In October 2010, after viewing my work, a friend recommended a number of art and crafting magazines focusing on mixed media. These included Cloth, Paper, Scissors, Somerset Art Journaling and Somerset Studio. She lent me a copy and I found myself completely captivating. Turning through the pages, I once again found myself once utterly inspired. My passion for visual journaling had once again been renewed. I began to create set after set of 6in x 6in pages.
My creative addiction is now back in full force. I find visual journaling to be delightfully therapeutic, an opportunity to play creatively and try new techniques and mediums.
And I need to get strong. And if memory serves. I'm addicted to words and they're useless. -–Motion City Soundtrack
