Your Painted Story

Learn to use intuitive painting, drawing & writing to create your own artist books

This is the third and final part of The Painted Journey where we get to fill our painted book with our own rich content. This is not a typical illustrated story, rather it is an intuitively guided exploration of what stirs us from within. It introduces spontaneous, uncensored, writing exercises that combine with image-making techniques like collage, drawing & painting to create a narrative that is both personal and meaningful.

Books by their very nature are intimate and a perfect place to discover our own hidden gems that have been waiting to shine. By combining images and writing we are accessing both sides of the brain and re-writing our own story to reveal growth and healing. So whether you are drawn to abstract or representational images and pros or poetry, this is a way to bring them together that expresses your unique voice and vision.

This is an ideal way to use the Painted Journal you created in the previous segments of the course, but you can also use these processes in an altered book or another type of journal if you want to take it on its own.

I have been in the arts my entire life and I have used visual journaling for over 15 years as a rich source of healing and guidance. I feel so impressed by its ability to discover areas of new growth and healing where other processes could not seem to go. I have also spent the last decade training and working in the healing arts focusing on creative expression and conscious awakening. I have a MA in Counseling from Southwestern College in Santa Fe, NM, with a specialization in Art Therapy, and a degree in Somatic Polarity from New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts. I also have additional training in trauma therapies including basic EMDR and advanced certification in Brainspotting™. Creative Inquiry weaves this all together into a comprehensive way to access your own inner wisdom.
