Alicia Schultz
Vine & Thistle
Alicia is 32 and lives in Portland, Oregon. She loves to create intuitively and freely and let the art come out without holding back. When it all comes together on a spread, it feels magical, meaningful, and like a deep breath for her soul. The worst part of art journaling can be the in-between stages. When she’s just finished a journal and is getting ready to start another, sometimes she needs a small break between the two. It’s as if she needs to come down from finishing and get into a new state of mind to start the next one! Her favorite dinosaur is the triceratops because she says she relates to that three-horned dino!

Clare Etheridge
Cats Eat Dogs
Clare is originally from the north of England and has lived in the mid-west of America since 2003. Her workplace is the local library where she is a part time librarian, which is good because she loves books. Her favourite part of art journaling is the opportunity to create with no pressure and usually no finished idea in mind and the chance to create a sketchbook and fill it up however she wants! The worst part of art journaling for Clare is knowing when to stop! Her favourite dinosaur is Brontosaurus because they eat plants and have a long neck, like her!

Divyam Bernstein
Divsy

Divyam is a 47 year old writer and cartoonist living in London. Her favourite part of of art journaling is that no matter what is going on, whatever mood she is in, she always feels so much better after doodling and throwing some paint around. The worst thing about about art journaling is that she often neglects all sorts of important things on her to do list and spends her time making art instead. Her favourite dinosaur is the Zigongosaurus.

Elly McComb
Ellymack

Elly is 32 and lives in Sydney, Australia. Her favourite part of journaling is being able to play. She loves being able to test out ideas, and styles, and mediums without pressure. This applies to the ideas she’s expressing too: getting to work through experiences and communicating opinions in a place that is fun, safe, and colourful. The downside of art journaling for her is cleaning up. Hands down the worst part. She dislikes it so much that she often just neglects this step and works around the chaos. There is paint on everything at Elly’s house. Triceratops and Stegosaurus would have to battle it out for favourite status because they are her favourite to draw.

Moriah Costa
Illustrated Life of Myrh

Moriah is a 25 year old American transplant living in Madrid, Spain. Her favourite part of art journaling is being able to experiment with different techniques and styles and not having to care about making mistakes or if it doesn’t look good. The worst part of art journaling for her is having a great idea when she’s at work and having to wait until she gets home to start creating.  Her favorite dinosaur is the Argentinosaurus.

Sarah Rondon
SJ Rondon

Sara is 33 and lives in Rockland County, New York. The best part of art journaling for Sarah is that it’s just for her. She can be as free as she wants in the pages and there’s no right or wrong. Her art journals have become more than just a way to try new supplies and techniques, but a way for her to document the phases of her life. If there is a worst part of art journaling, it’s the pressure Sarah puts on herself to make each page “complete.” Years of art school make it difficult to let go. Her favorite dinosaur is the Archaeopteryx.

TC Larson
TC Larson

TC is in her early 40s and lives in St. Paul, Minnesota. Her favorite part of art journaling is following a feeling or idea and seeing where it leads on a page. The worst part of art journaling for TC is getting to a point when she’s frustrated because things aren’t coming together. Her favorite dinosaur is the Stegosaurus.

Tiffany Julia
aerialovely
Tiffany is an artist of many trades living in New York City with an absolute passion for documenting her everyday life. A traveller to the core, she loves documenting her various journeys around the world in thick handmade travel journals bursting with photos, memories, and travel ephemera. She loves anything artsy and says she was born to create. Tiffany loves the freedom art journaling gives her to express and play with whatever her heart desires. There are no wrong ways to journal! Her least favorite part of art journaling is cleaning up after the fun time of getting messy. Reptar is her favorite dinosaur, for sure.
