Journal Pages

My journal is about images rather than words. I try to put something down on the page each day I come to the studio- that's the goal anyway, but I'm forgiving if a few days go by without an entry. Journaling, for me, is an exercise in openness to what comes without agenda, expectations or editing. The usual suspects on my studio table- paper scraps, gouache, pencil and glue stick are the materials utilized. I can see the direct relationship between the images in my journal and finished work in the studio. The journals contain the seeds of my work and have become a personal history, a graphic memoir that explains who I am in a way words never could.
