Drawing in Life is part of a collection of images and thoughts I have gathered as an artist and teacher. While drawing, I achieve an elusive state of mindfulness and connection unavailable to me by other means in a busy life. With desire, commitment and time, everyone can draw.
The act of writing by hand lights up parts of the brain not stimulated by using a keyboard. Also, reading handwritten text as opposed to typed text, lights up more areas of the brain. Handwritten works combined with art must then be even more powerful. Viewing drawings can trigger vivid memories and emotions by linking these experiences with all of our senses.
I invite you to begin a daily practice of drawing and journaling whether you are a beginner or a master. The examples and exercises included here will guide you on your path.
