Art Journal Vol V :: Just Beginning

After finishing my journal last week, it was bittersweet to start a new one today. I always find that I have to get comfortable with a new journal and its size and individual characteristics each time I start a new one. I decided to use the license plate journal that I wrote about here as my new journal.

Here are the first few pages of the journal. The first image is the opening page, kind of the introduction to the journal. And the second page is a depiction of the headache that I had only behind one eye today.

Self-care is something that is deeply important to me, and I continue a practice I started in graduate school, which is to keep an art journal specifically for my self-care as a therapist. You can read more about that here and here.


  1. Kelley,

    This is a wonderful new journal. Does the Kentucky license plate have significance for you?

    I can deeply identify with your depiction of the headache. I think you captured the feeling perfectly!

  2. Hannah,

    Thanks so much! Yes Kentucky is my home state. Born and raised. I moved to Missouri not quite 4 years ago to study art therapy, and stayed after grad school. After finally switching to a Missouri plate, I knew the Kentucky plate needed a special purpose.
