What brings you to an interest in Touch Drawing or SoulCards?
I began touch drawing after the death of my husband of 42 years ... as a way to express my grief and explore my soul through my hands and heart. The creative freedom touch drawing evokes has helped in the healing process, as I learned to set an intent, be in the moment and live each day to its fullest. Touch drawing has taught me that magic can occur when you least expect it .. when you set your creative soul FREE! It has helped me find my purpose as an artist and a writer,
From a career in the business world to a career in the creative arts world ... I have found my new home. My website: http://essenceoflaurel.com/ displays my works. I have written a book/journal entitled "Emerging Voices" which is a compilation of my art and poetry. It is my purpose - to share and help heal those who are or have gone through life's many transitions - with my words and art.

Share a special experience with Touch Drawing or SoulCards.
Touch drawing and then collaging has opened up my creative soul. It took all boundaries away, all rules away, and just let me "be" and find myself. These drawings are often inspiration for my poetry. Who would think that at 64 I could find the kid in me again who wasn't afraid of the judgment of others and could learn to see what is "outside the lines."
If so, with whom and how?
Just bought them.
Is there anything else you would like us to know about you?
My works are exhibited at arts and craft shows. The next one coming up is listed on my website. People are fascinated by the use of this artform and the story of my emerging creativity.
