Quinn McDonald had every intention of being an obedient child, a dutiful wife, and the mom who baked cookies for PTA meetings. Due to an unexpected wrinkle in the space/time continuum, that didn’t happen.

Raw Art Journaling brings self-expression through the act of art journaling to its most basic, "raw" and easiest level ever. Beginning and seasoned artists and writers often come up against blocks when prompted to write or draw something original. This obstacle is addressed with exercises such as creating found poetry, the Words as Tarot Exercise and a wide range of abstract, doodle-like design suggestions- just to name a few.

Quinn has experience writing for newspapers, corporations, those in need of speeches, financial firms and marketing companies, and she currently offers creativity tips on her blog. She writes two columns for Stampington: The Business of Art in Somerset Studio and The Raw Edge in Art Quilt Magazine. Quinn teaches courses on writing for the web, team building, creative thinking for leadership and other custom writing courses, and she is a life and creativity coach.
