What You'll Find at Hello Heart Journal

First and most importantly, you'll find encouragement. If there's nothing else you get from this site, I want you to know this:

Art journaling is powerful.

It's a playground, art school, and church for the heart.

It's medicine, too.

I want you to know that you can experience all of these things.

It doesn't matter if you're an artist or not. You could be—many artists keep art journals—but many other people do too. Don't worry if you don't think you have "talent". You're off the hook in your art journal. You can play with paint and pens and papers and anything else that you feel like picking up—and it's only for you.

All you have to do is want to create and express yourself.

I can help you with the rest.

This website is for anyone who wants to learn more about art journaling

There are just three main sections:


Introduction to Art Journaling — This is where you can learn the fundamentals. If you're new to art journaling, you will find each article in this section very useful to help you begin.

Notes from the Inner Ground — Dive in to this collection to sort out with me what exactly goes on inside when we art journal. This is probably the heart-juiciest section of all.

Tutorial Library — It's so much fun to learn new techniques and grow new skills as we art journal and that joy is all heart too!

I expect all of these collections will grow and grow as I continue to learn and share.

If you have any questions, please contact me. if you want to get in touch for any reason (I love questions and comments, sharing and inspiration), just click on one of those little icons at the top of about every page: email me or follow me on Pinterest and/or Instagram.

One way or another, I hope you'll stay in touch!
