CREATIVE COMMUNICATOR (Artist, designer, art therapist, author)
Apparently it’s time to shake things up! The house is on the market, I’m in a new apartment and so it’s time to move on to new ventures and a new domain home, MonicaDougherty.com.
In the process of cleaning and purging in preparation to move out of the home I lived in for 30 years, I came upon some old journals and took a little time to read through some of them. Something that struck me was that I declared myself a “creative communicator” and it’s a phrase that fits! My training has been in fine art, design and art therapy. But something I’ve done all throughout these years is write – initially in a journal, but have also published a children’s book, You’re a Miracle…Pass It On! (soon to be published in a revised format as an Amazon Kindle e-book and also a trade book through Create Space), co-authored with a colleague, Mary Beth Sammons, Images of America: Irish American Heritage Center, published a fact-based novel entitled Rose’s Ring (and now retitled Inheritors of Silence and Secrets) and Mary Beth and I are getting ready to release our new book, Your Family Story To Go!
So, lots going on, changes afoot, new roads to take and new dreams to realize! Hope you stay tuned.
