My name is Linda Hough. I received my first vision at the age of 10. That day in school, we were asked to create artwork for a contest at the local bank. While walking home and thinking about the assignment, a fully formed image popped into my head. When I got home, I pulled out my art supplies, found some pieces of felt and immediately set out to realize this image. It ended up winning 1st place.
Thus began my creative path, though wobbly and not without interruptions, leading me to where I am today.
An unapologetic lifelong learner, book girl and avid fan of Roger Federer, I am living my dream life. Transported by love from California to the south of France where I currently live, I spend my days buried in bottles of paint, piles of magazines and way too many visual journals to count. In other words, my idea of heaven.
Through my own struggles, I’ve learned how to carve a path through the resistance that can crop up at the most inconvenient of times. That first vision was followed by others, but there were also confusing times when I lost my way. From those difficult experiences, I learned how to honor, trust and navigate my way through the creative process, bringing me more joy, confidence and understanding than any other life path could have provided.
Completing an MA in Art, getting certifications from Coaches Training Institute and Lisa Sonora's Creative Journey Facilitator Training are vital parts of my résumé. But equally important is my extreme passion for freeing the creative expression and visionary potential in each and every one of us!
I hope you’ll join me on this Visionary Journaling™ journey.
