IN MY BONES: A Visual Journal
IN MY BONES available @ CreateSpace eStore
Orly Avineri, the author of One Artist Journal and 14 Artist Journals opens her visual journal once again to express her belief in the boundlessness that comes from admitting incompleteness and ambivalence – in the sheer relief that comes from one’s willingness to exit the body in order to pour an intimate world onto pages of a visual journal and share it generously. All for the purpose of experiencing gentle journeys back to self and creating a true sense of belonging and connection.

14 Artist Journals is a wondrous grouping of journal pages from fourteen impassioned individuals. In it I reveal the delicate worlds of creative types for whom visual journaling had become a spiritual practice, an honest and raw expression of who they are. The book sustains my belief that all individuals have the capacity to make changes that are needed in their lives through the act of creating and to find new ways to advance their physical, emotional, and relational well-being. It makes known that art journaling is most definitely one such way.
I am endlessly grateful to the fourteen artists who agreed to be a part of this intricate tapestry of visual expression and humanity: Nathalie Nayer, Tracy V. Moore, Erin Faith Allen, Seth Apter, Juliana Coles, Maya Dunsky, Pnina Gold, Jesse Reno, Brian Kasstle, Hana Klos, Gil Avineri, Rachel Urista, Darcy Ruth Ritzau, and Vered Gersztenkorn.
