hi-i'm a 36-yo survivor of incest & physical childhood abuse. i'm starting an art journal based on Sarah ban Breathnac's "The Illustrated Discover Journal," Laura Davis's "The Courage to Heal Workbook" and the thousands of abuse-related poems I've written over the years. I've selected a few of these poems/prose/short stories to go into an anthology called "Inner Gold" but i wanted some visual healing arts to accompany the words.
i work part-time as an executive assistant & i'm in school to get my english degree. i have a 15-yo daughter, a great hubby, 3 kitties & an american eskimo puppy. we live in illinois & my interests are writing, art journals, running/jogging/slogging, hiking, boating, camping, cooking, yoga, meditation, music, salsa dance, going to the theater, ballet & old movies, star-gazing, hats, and lots of other things. i run a writers' group, co-host an open mic stage & belong to a journaling circle.
thanks for letting me be a part of this group! =)
