cropped-10593049_919240764791868_8744999034121126288_n.jpgMy name is Effy, and I'm a journal artist & on line teacher. I like to write & share about art journaling as a spiritual practice, and my go-to tool for healing & life documentation. I'm a mother of grown children, and I live with an adorable furbaby in a three story walk up apartment in Ontario, Canada.
