To make things a little easier for myself when answering emails I’ve come up with a list of the most frequently asked questions I receive. Hopefully you can find what you need below. If not, leave a comment with your question. If it’s not easily found by looking or answered below I’ll get back to you lickity-split
Do you teach at art retreats and gatherings?
I always appreciate the invitations, but at this time I’ll have to politely decline. I’m an introverted extrovert and being around too many people taxes my reserves. Think of me like a chimp in the zoo. The fewer people around me the less agitated I get.
I’m new to visual journaling. Can you guide me through the making of a visual journal or travel journal and explain your thought process?
Yes, I’d be happy to do that via the classes I teach on visual journaling + bookbinding, travel journaling, and constructing a shabby journal of scraps HERE. You can also find out plenty of information about my process by reading through THESE posts. You can see inside many of my journals by clicking around in the nav bar.
What kind of camera do you use?
What kind of printer do you have and what kind of paper do you use in it?
Canon MP620 and premium matte double-sided photo paper from any office supply store
What kind of paint do you use?
Whatever strikes my fancy when I’m at Dick Blick. I rarely buy the expensive stuff. A variety of brands of soft body acrylics, watercolors, inks, and cheap craft paint. Lately, Daniel Smith watercolors & gouache by Holbein, Schmincke, M. Graham
What kind of paper do you use in your visual journals?
I like smooth & luscious Fabriano hot-press 140lb watercolor paper. It’s dreamy!
Where do you find your vintage ledgers, papers, and ephemera?
Ebay, Etsy, thrift stores, flea markets & small shops I occasionally run across on my travels.
I’m planning a trip to LA. Can you suggest some places for me to go and let me know which are your favorite stores to visit?
I’m taking a trip to ———–can you give me some inside advice and suggestions or recommendations?
Certainly, but rather than restating what I’ve already written about, you can read about all of my former travels by looking in the nav bar. I also share my vacation rentals HERE.
