Student Art

Here’s just some of the wonderful art that students have produced in this class.

Tiffany Julia


Tiffany is an artist of many trades living in New York City, who has an absolute passion for travel and documenting her everyday life. She’s been art journaling since 2012 and considers image transfers a staple in all of her journals. In fact, her art journals are never quite complete without a good ol’ image transfer spread. She’s so excited to be teaching the technique because it seems to rarely be used in art journaling. When she’s not art journaling, she’s scrapbooking, filming videos, or writing music. She loves anything pastel, floral, and shabby chic.
