Discover what author and illustrator Janice MacLeod says is the multivitamin for your creative life! This practice led her from her job writing advertising copy to her life as an artist in Paris – and it’s one you can start today!
Janice MacLeod, the illustrator and author of the New York Times best-selling book Paris Letters, was born in Canada and worked in advertising for many years until she decided to slip away from corporate drudgery and spend time abroad. During her time in Paris, she painted letters about her travels and mailed them to friends, who encouraged her to sell the personalized illustrated letters on Etsy. Since then, Janice has sent out thousands of letters to fans worldwide. She has also released a second Paris-themed book called A Paris Year, an illustrated journal of her life as an artist in Paris.
