TONDO – Visual notes on the wonder path

It’s done. The book is ready. It’s called TONDO – visual notes on the wonder path. “Tondo” is a Renaissance term for a circular work of art.

A book looks simply like a book, a stack of pages, filled with fine print and pretty pictures, held together by some form of binding. But beyond the box of a book it’s a project, a process, a container, a celebration, a mirror, a permission slip, a goal, a coming out, an experience of completion and above all: a way to share the journey, to inspire others and to pay the gifts forward.

Tondo is an art journal, a creativity guide and a cabinet of curiosities. It’s a curated collection of more than eighty round illustrations, doodles, paintings and notes that I have created over the past 12 years. The collection tells my visual story of creative and spiritual inquiry in a variety of art media.

I hope to inspire others to connect their own creative dots.

It’s also a Renaissance Soul manifesto – if you have multiple talents, give yourself permission to develop them all!
