Making art is powerful life changing stuff.
Reflecting on your art making is a way to give you insight into the values, beliefs and mindsets that influence who you are as an artist and a person. It’s a way to become more mindful when making art and in life in general.
With this in mind Tracee Vetting Wolf and I wrote Artist rEvolution A Five Week Odyssey into Inward Facing Collaboration, Self Awareness & Discovery. In it, we talk about the riches of developing your own daily art making practice and outline a delightful Inward Facing Collaboration process to amplify your creativity called Personal Gallery.
I think you two are on to something that will be very beneficial to artists. I think it can be helpful to me too, as a writer.Sarah Bracey White

Tracee Vetting Wolf
Tracee is an artist living in Ossining, NY. She holds a bachelors degree in Applied Design and Visual Communication and a Masters in Architecture. Her art practice consists of a morning ritual of breakfast at her art table, making art + message to put in her son’s lunch box every day. Her art journal is her creativity playground and compassionate therapist. Any other art is usually due to some thrilling fear or unexplainable obsession that wants attention; she will indulge.
“Amanda & Tracee are great models for anyone wanting to move forward in their own art making. Reading their book helped me shift my mindset, try new approaches and develop a more satisfying daily art practice. The process they share in the book has unlimited applications. I highly recommend it!” Emily
