ART JOURNALING & SELF CONFIDENCE

to help you overcome creative blocks and see how beautiful your art is

Are you an artist?

I truly believe that you are,

and that you can be any kind of artist you choose to be.

Starting today.

I’m here to help you awaken your inner artist and inspire you to create art freely. Until you yourself realize that you indeed are an artist.

I’m sure you already have what it takes to make beautiful art, maybe you just need

  • some inspiration and ideas to get you started
  • guidance on art techniques and supplies
  • motivation to create daily
  • a friend who’s been there and can encourage you to create and love your art!

 

The bottom line is that you feel that creative spark, your inner artist is impatient to be heard, and I’d like to be that friend that shows you how to see yourself as an artist.

Hi, I'm Ivana

I’ve been passionate about art since forever. My fascination with art, photography, painting and drawing has made me who I am today. I’m a professional photographer and an art journaling enthusiast.

Art journaling changed my perspective on the art I create and myself as a person. 

I’ve found that with art journaling I can be a drawing artist, a painter, a doodling artist, whatever I want. The freedom to create without rules and limitations is priceless.

At the beginning of the quest after my inner artist, I was feeling like a lost girl with a teddy in her arms calling for momma. Art journaling changed that. Tremendously.

Now I am more confident to make art, and call it art.

One of the biggest reasons art journaling is so irresistible, is that you can create without the fear of ruining your art or that someone will judge you. You are the only one who makes up the rules.

This is me in a nutshell:

Seeing Aurora Borealis is high on my bucket list.

The idea of the universe mesmerises me and inspires me.

I love sleeping. A LOT. You don’t wanna wake me up just because.

I dream of having an art studio with floor-to-ceiling windows.

A dog AND a cat person.

I could live eating only pancakes.

Serenity is one of my favorite words.

A sucker for snuggling, and even more snuggling.

I dance while making breakfast or just because it’s more fun to get across the hall like that.

Goofing around with my boyfriend in our home is priceless to me.

Arrogant and rude people – I stay away from them
