Frequently Asked Questions


What are Soul Journals?

"Soul Journals" are what I call my watercolor travel journals that I bring to various locations or events throughout the world. Within these journals, I paint everyday people and scenery at these locations. Everything is painted from life (not from photographs)! 

Why print books?

Instead of sharing digital images or individual pages, I've decided the best format to distribute these original experiences was through replicas of the entire journals. I've ensured that these replicas stay true to the same size and format as the originals. You can physically feel them in your hands as if you are holding the original travel journals. 

Are you doing this by yourself?

Yes. Everything else is done by me, except for the book printing which is done locally in California. I appreciate all of your patience and support. It's been a thrilling adventure!

When will I get my book?

You will receive your book within a week if it is in stock. Sometimes I am out of town (creating these books!), so delivery may take up to two weeks. NOTE: If your order is out of stock, I will notify you of the estimated delivery date, sent to the email you provided during the order. I will deliver the order to you as soon as they're printed.  

Why was I charged tax?

I am currently based in California, and therefore I must collect and pay CA tax on all sales.
