A little about my creative  process...

Sense of Freedom Journal - Melanie Fagan_edited.jpg

Photography is my first creative love language.
It inspires me and offers the most amazing experiences and moments, as well as subjects and stories.  
When I share my photographs, my hope is that it is an invitation for you to share in that experience with me. 
I want to you feel as if you are there in that moment
when the bee passes by the lavender.  

What if I, or we, could then do more with these experiences and images?  I found myself wanting to get my hands into paint and plaster, and color.  I love the softness of pastels and the fragrance of encaustic medium literally relaxes me. 
For this reason, I love mixed media art.  
It opens the doors to the use of various mediums inviting intuition, and the use of my photographs,
to influence my creativity. 

I also incorporate both into my sacred & soulful journaling.
It is where I spend time renewing my mind, praising, praying, and playing with art supplies.  My journals are filled with more than words, pictures, and art supplies. They also hold the precious gift of the time I spend within their pages,
as well as the healing and growth they nurture.    

It is because of this merging process that I've found more purpose and meaning in my creativity.  One feeds the other and they honestly have transformed my life and infused it with more faith, more passion, more joy, and more beauty.
