Tools & Talismans #6 — Jill Salahub

The pen is a Pentel Clarius, the perfect pen and probably my most essential tool – that and a blank piece of paper. The mala and Bodhisattva represent my yoga and meditation practice. And the dog cookie represents my fourth practice, dog. My phone keeps me connected, and I need my glasses to see when I teach.

—Jill Salahub is a Writer, Teacher, Bodhisattva.  She is a wholehearted practitioner of writing, yoga, meditation, self-compassion, and dog. She teaches yoga and writing and meditation, with her mission being to ease suffering, in herself and the world. Jill writes about the tenderness and the terror, the beauty and the brutality of life, and of her efforts to keep her heart open through it all on her blog, A Thousand Shades of Gray.


Do you have an illustration project that you think my style might be a good fit for? Looking for illustrations for your website, book project or have something else in mind? Please let me know, I'd love to work with you!

Tools & Talismans is a personal painting project where I’m documenting {in watercolor} the tools and talismans of 100 different women — creators and healers, thinkers and makers, wordsmiths and visionaries. Join me for a year of Tools & Talismans — I'll be sharing a new painting with you every Wednesday.
