Alicia Schultz

Alicia lives in Portland, Oregon. She loves to create intuitively and freely and let the art come out without holding back. When it all comes together on a spread, it feels magical, meaningful, and like a deep breath for her soul. The worst part of art journaling can be the in-between stages. When she’s just finished a journal and is getting ready to start another, sometimes she needs a small break between the two. It’s as if she needs to come down from finishing and get into a new state of mind to start the next one! Her favorite dinosaur is the triceratops because she says she relates to that three-horned dino!
