Wendy Hale Davis is an artist, journal artist and professional bookbinder in Austin, Texas. I sent her fan mail when I saw her fabulous inlaid leather journals in Jason Thompson’s book, Making Journals by Hand (Quarry, 2000–check out pages 26 & 27, for example) and have since included her work in one of my own books, Living the Creative Life (North Light Books, 2007). Plus I have her on the iPhone equivalent of speed dial because she’s way better than Siri at being able to provide almost any information you can imagine. If Wendy doesn’t know it, it’s probably not worth knowing. You can see more of her journals on her website, here, ,and you can find contact info for her workshops if you’re going to be in Austin.
Today is her birthday, and she turns 60, and it’s the perfect time to hear what an amazingly creative woman has to say about remaining curious and creative your whole life.
