a hand lettering practice
i rise. i rise in devotion
i rise to practice my handwriting. a practice that is guiding me
to to carry only love
love for my handwriting.
a daily practice. over 365 days.
using a journal. painted white. a black ink pen
i listen. i write what I hear.
i use the lines for guidance.
i am learning. i am being shown
this dedication is my devotion.
this devotion is my practice.
this practice is what i teach.
i teach to share. to give.
to give all the love within in
a way into the world.
i have been shown this is my gift to give.
in honor + dedication + truth.
these are written in the light
all my life i carried the words "you have nice handwriting"
i carried being afraid to use it in my own artwork
at the age of 28 i decided to surrender
to surrender and practice
a moment of choice
shifting my thoughts on my handwriting to begin using it in my book arts
over 365 days this practice has been in motion
it has become a moving devotion.
i see my days in photographs + began to document the pages.
on an old wooden box found on an adventure while in Nova Scotia
i have a book case of collected "little bits" i place on the page.
this practice has become a devotion.
