About The Cover

Diane Keys
Writer/Photographer/Multi-Media Artist    

This piece was my very first visual journal entry for an online class I was taking at Shimelle.com. The prompt was 'risk taking'. The thought of making something as personal as a visual art journal public, brought up a lot of my insecurities. I tried to allow myself to create without censoring and let whatever came out be 'good enough'.   

"Rather than being pretty or polite, I want my art to have truth to it. I like to chronicle periods of time visually, often using found objects or otherwise mundane items as a way to lend authenticity. I believe we each can cultivate synchronicity in our lives. As I nervously thought about making my first visual journal spread, I was cooking dinner and was drawn to the sticker on the package: "Use Your Imagination, Be Creative. Add Your Own Favorite Ingredients and Create Something Unique". I knew I had to use this on my page!
