From Art to Empowerment: How Women Can Develop Artistic Voice
My hands-on workbook for self-discovery through artistic expression came out in 2020!
It describes the method I have developed over 20 years of working with women in art education. This book guides women in developing self-awareness and personal power through making art. It helps women to look inward, find inspiration in personal life experiences and generate their own themes, images and symbols, ultimately discovering what is meaningful to them and learning to express that visually. In the book I lead women through a step-by-step process using self-reflective thinking, visualizing, journaling, and other creative practices. It starts with explaining how to find a personal story that you can use for your art-making and it ends with advice to organize your final exhibition, in order to share your artwork with friends and family.
The book has twenty-four practical fun exercises and twelve art assignments that guide you to develop your artistic voice: that unique way of art-making that is so characteristic of who you are, your own style! This book will expand your artistic ability and self-awareness as you work in collage on an issue of personal interest.
It is available on Amazon, Archway and Barnes & Noble as a print copy and as an e-book.
