"Readiness" is the second episode of "Therapeutic visual journaling" and it is all about the first act of doing. "Readiness" is the breaking moment when the creative process starts. It is the moment of breaking initial fear and doing regardless. I would like to invite you to take this act of bravery and make first step, your mark, pick up a pen and simply start. As simple it sounds I know from my guiding practice that there many people finding it very difficult...

Revealing and healing through abstract

Abstracts are mysteries...Not only in a sense of how open they are to interpretation depending on viewer's eyes but also from the perspective of how they are created. I took abstract in last 6 months on the journey of intuitive approach, inner perspective, personal self-discovery and its therapeutic power. It took me a while to understand the connection that is formed between the creator and abstract shapes, colours combination and composition. There is so much more deep there...

 Art journaling, visual journaling or simply personal, creative diary- many names but also many people who can confirm that that form of art has a massive healing capability. Books are and have been the personal thoughts collectors for centuries. From written forms to more expressive ones- journal is always the trusted companion. Gradually my art journaling practice took me on this journey as discovered more and more that it can heal, reveal, tell me so much that is beyond possibility of expressing with words. Inspired by work with others and guiding them on this self-discovery journey I decided to release new series on You Tube channel. After the initial “Subconscious collage” followed by “Behind the journals” series this time I am taking a plunge into a strongly therapeutic aspect of visual journaling. Join me!

21 Secrets emBODY art journal course

So...big news is...that 4 years ago I was a student of 21 Secrets workshop that helped me to take first steps in this creative journey. I took the classes without any art experience, simply trusting that my creativity and willingness to learn be enough to do it. This year almost 4 years later I am one of the teachers for embody edition! We have a line up of 21 amazing teachers (including painters like Olga Furman, Renata Loree and Kara Bullock) as well as art journales like Amanda Grace - all touching with their unique art approach, subjects like healing, body image, self-acceptance. And of course it is just me having the most complicated name among them all with no doubt! :)

Beyond control is the true creativity...

I got really inspired by somebody's comment on one of my art post saying "This is maybe not what you wanted to create but it is something that needed to be expressed". This is all about standing open to your own creativity. Are we fully honest with ourself and our art in whatever shape it takes? There is that trust deeply rooted in a creative process, in order to make it possible to take over our human desire to control, expect and approve.
