Publisher Comments:

"We are all facing choices that define us. No choice, however messy, is without importance in the overall picture of our lives. We all at our own age have to claim something, even if it is only our own confusion. I am in the middle of growing up and into myself. This book is my life in progress."

Spilling Open: The Art of Becoming Yourself is the creative expression of one young woman's attempt to understand herself as she grows into adulthood. Sabrina Ward Harrison shares her private journal and art, offering us lessons in life and empowerment that resonate with fresh, youthful wisdom.

Written when Harrison was between the ages of eighteen and twenty-one, Spilling Open captures the artist's journey of self-discovery with a powerful and courageous voice. This book is an intimate and moving picture of what it means to enter a contemporary adult world that is filled with contradictions about womanhood. Harrison reveals with tender honesty that, in spite of the women's movement, she has found more questions than answers about growing up female.

Harrison's writing and multimedia art explore questions about love, faith, growing pains, being true, peer groups, and identity. A truly unique experience, Spilling Open will help open your heart and your mind.

About the Author

Sabrina Ward Harrison is now twenty-four. She was born in Canada and lives in Oakland, California, in a converted fire station that she uses as her home and studio. Harrison spends her time making art on the floor, exploring with her camera, and teaching a course on the art of becoming yourself. Her work has been exhibited throughout the country and portrays spilling of all sorts.

I loved your journal it was so good. It reminded me of my high school years and the struggle I went through. It is truly an inspriation. And the art work is cool too.
