The Art of keeping a Journal

Journalling not only supports my daily creative practice– it is is an essential part of it. I keep several different kinds of journals–art journals, junk journals, writing journals. Through journalling I have learned how to deepen my creative process, expand  my imagination, experiment with creative ideas,  overcome personal challenges, and transform my life  with all it’s ups and downs into art.

I love journalling so much that I trained to become a certified Journal to the Self® workshop facilitator– an amazing magical process based on the work of Kathleen Adams  of the Therapeutic Writing Institute  and her twenty-two extraordinary transformative techniques. As an avid journal keeper for most of my life, it’s a perfect fit for me to teach this work. It is a wonderful process for writers and non-writers alike.  If you live in the Vancouver area and are interested in finding out when and where I am teaching  please contact me at



My name is Lynna Goldhar Smith, or Lynna-G for short. I am a multi-disciplinary artist--I draw, paint, write, and direct live theatre whenever I can. I believe in filling my life with as much creative expression as possible and I encourage others to do the same. I am often told that I do art in too many ways to be sensible but it's just the way I roll.
