Never Flinch: A Visual Journal
"Never Flinch is an autobiographical visual journal that I published as a print on demand book through in 2014. A visual journal is a marriage of writing and art; a playground for a busy, creative mind; an ampliﬁcation of your inner voice; a record of your experiences; a regular meeting over coffee between you and yourself. Through a rich layering of mixed media drawing, printmaking and collage, this self-reﬂective journal immerses the reader in a colorful narrative about life, art, science, travel and family. In my journal practice, I use a wide variety of materials and techniques. I write the text using a stream of consciousness, timed writing approach, and then visualize the writing through collage, image transfers, wax resist, linoleum prints, ink wash, acrylic, watercolor, drawing and erasure poetry." - Rachel Marie Simmons
