Elizabeth Evans D’Ascensao

Elizabeth lives in Boston with her husband, two young children and not-so-young French bulldog. She is passionate about encouraging others in their creative pursuits and building peaceful communities. She almost always laughs at her own jokes.

Though I’ve kept visual journals as long as I can remember, I didn’t realize art journaling was, like, a thing… until I stumbled upon the Get Messy Art Journal community on Instagram. For me, art journaling is a critical element in my growth as an artist. It’s my opportunity to forgo perfection, experiment freely and create pieces that are at times deeply personal, and at others, frivolous and pure fun.
