secrets

i’ve been working on a visual journal since 2005 and revisit it at various times

it began as an old devotional book called secrets of a beautiful life, which I’ve retitled secrets

after 7 years i felt it might be time to share some of my journal pages …

here’s the inside front cover and title page; this spread is called silent times

i’ve called this spread sing

this is one is called healed

and this one, heart and mind

i was inspired by a reworked book published in 1973 by british artist tom phillips, titled humument
