Silhouette Stories

I am so excited to share my article from the 2012 issue of Pages magazine with you! I find myself drawn to silhouettes, and use them in my journal work often. I wrote this article to demonstrate how to bridge the gap between nostalgic and modern, and also give examples of different ways they feature in my work. I was thrilled to see the layout, and how many samples of my work that were used. You can order a copy here or pick one up at Barnes and Noble. Enjoy!


  1. Congratulations!!!! I can't wait to get my issue this weekend! Your pages are so inspiring...I just love playing in my art journals...

  2. Thanks Kathy! I really appreciate that! I know what you mean, our journals are such a fun, yet sacred space. I don't know what I'd do without mine!

  3. Congratulations on being published in Pages! How exciting. I think I have that on my computer as a digital download. I will have to look for your article!
