Not only do I love to keep art journals, I also love making them. I have the Zutter binding system, so I can create any size or shape and a variety of papers.

I keep several art journals- each has a distinct purpose. One for quotes I find along the way, one for ideas, one that is a 'typical' art journal with pages of ongoing art making. One for get the idea...
