BASTROP – December 12, 2023 – Little Haven Art Studio has launched online, giving art enthusiasts the opportunity to purchase art and handmade journals. By exploring the collection from Little Haven Art Studio, viewers can also learn about the benefits of art journaling and grow in their Christian faith.
Amanda Craig created Little Haven Art Studio to address the lack of thematic art celebrating the beautiful Lost Pines scenery that is unique to Bastrop, Texas. As an emerging mixed media artist who finds inspiration in her faith, she also wanted to introduce faith-centered mixed media art to the local art scene. Her goal is to guide individuals through a journey that focuses on beauty, healing, and self-discovery.
“The intention behind my art is to create a haven of peace in your home,” says Amanda Craig. “Beyond that, it functions as a visual reminder, keeping you focused on your Christian walk.”
Craig’s art features the loblolly pines and rolling hills of the Lost Pines area, all from a faith-centered perspective and tied to inspirational verses or quotes. She uses a variety of substrates, ranging from canvas to wood panel, paper, and occasional structural armatures such as seasonal table centerpieces.
Having experienced the healing benefits of art journaling herself, Craig also designs handmade journals that can be used for introspective journaling or water-based mixed media work. These journals are made with a canvas and chipboard cover and a high-quality waxed linen thread that allows the journals to lay open and stay flat for easier use. With these handcrafted journals, customers can produce art of their own and enjoy creative expression with personal meaning and intention.
Art journaling helps people to heal and find peace by allowing them to pour their emotions and thoughts into a visual journal. By offering this creative avenue, art journaling helps people process and work through life’s challenges in a way that is unique and personal to each person.
“Taking the time to produce art that you pour out of your heart is a very personal experience,” says Craig. “It can be surprisingly comforting to create in this way because you might choose to work through areas of difficulty in your life – such as failed relationships or lost opportunities – but in a way that is productive, helps you heal, and closes the door on those regrets. Or you might choose to celebrate your victories and bring some healthy context to them. It’s a beautiful way to use creative expression to enrich your life.”
