This was my very first series which I began in February 2013. It began with my attempt to figure out how to do art on my iPad. I saw lots of really cool digital art journaling and was trying to replicate it. Much as I tried, I could not do it. And still to this day, I cannot make a decent art journaling page (digital or not) to save my life. What I realized is that the art journaling I was trying to duplicate just didn’t resonate with me on a soul level, even though I thought the pages were beautiful. So, I just started playing around with some found images (old book illustrations) and put them together the way my heart wanted them. One of the old books I found on archive.org is The Heroines of Shakespeare (1850) which has the loveliest images of women. I taught myself Photoshop Touch with this series — all the images were created using only Photoshop Touch. I hadn’t learned how to move images into different apps for post-processing yet.
