Art Journal

When I pick up my pencil or brush I start with a free mind and soul, it often happens that I feel my inner critic looking over my shoulder talking about perfectionism and from that moment I am lost. My head takes over and I am not able to create from the heart anymore. I would like to work more loose and spontaneous, without expectations, using a journal, to express my feelings and thoughts in an expressive way.

I am not that person who writes a lot, I have lots of thoughts, feelings and ideas that I would love to write about, but I always feel as if there exist not enough words to express my feelings and thoughts and then I am feeling blocked. When talking, I always use to many words because I would like people to understand the things I want to say into the same details as I see it in my mind. So as this is almost impossible I feel helpless and awkward when it comes to words. So lets give it a try with a new approach.

I like to illustrate my imaginary world by expressing and translating my thoughts and feelings into color and pattern.
