I , too love writing over a dark image with white pencil.

I love the facial expression on the figure and the lines and circles are beautiful.

GREAT piece of writing.

Love the art and the writing, your work is so inspiring Katie.


I love this, so soulful. Will I see you at AFF?


love the page its sensational.


. . . and a fantastic journal page it is. Your art always touches me.


The sideways glance and the quirky smile... the cloak that makes her look protected and steadfast... and then those words. I think that artists so often feel those "inner explosions," but they are the life blood of creativity, even though the trick is to find a way to keep "tethered down." The questions is.. to what? I think those intense swings of emotion are a necessary companion to creativity; they are symptoms of sensitivity, but you have to learn to ride them out. I love the texture of this page. It's a wonderful combination of fluid and scratchy. It must look amazing in person:>


This is so dreamy and grown up all at once. And I wonder, what is beneath the cloak of many colours? If we were to split it open, just a wee bit, would flooding light pour through? Or would it draw us in to subtler places and spaces within? When I look at this I feel invited to find out. :-)

This page contains my two favorite (at the moment) things. I love those mysterious, muted colors and I am obsessed with writing with a white pen. Your work encourages me to let go a bit more. Poem is a very moving touch.

Katie Darling-

Fantastic, beautiful, spilling forth your heart and soul. She looks like she is waiting for something, someone...like a seed waiting to open. Is this how you are feeling?

No artfest for me :-( No room at the inn... Oh well, there is always next year!


Abby Creek Art

Beautiful journal page...and I love the May Sarton writing.

By the way...how is little Peanut doing?


Your use of shape and abstracts create a depth, which rushes forth upon viewing. The work blends perfectly with the poem. xoxoxoxo
