Nature Journaling is the process of documenting and interpreting the wonders of nature through observation and the application of all our senses. With the method of documenting, as individual as the person and subjects that nature has created, nature journaling helps deepen our connection, understanding and appreciation for all of nature and its' wonders.

The benefits of nature journaling are vast, but here are some:

  • an increased appreciation and connection to our nature, bird,  native flora and wildlife habitats;
  • improved cognition and memory;
  • reduction of stress and anxiety, and increased feeling of well-being, through being out in nature;
  • improved observation skills;
  • better drawing and artistic skills and application;
  • a sense of peace and tranquility through the act of slowing down and being present.
  • an increased sense of wonder, curiosity and imagination.

What is Nature Journaling?


Director|Social Worker, My Life Team

After first attending Kerry’s Nature Journaling workshop, I realised how easy it was to draw and paint - especially the natural world. I never believed I had much skill but Kerry taught me a few very basic techniques. These easy processes helped me to focus and I surprised myself at things I could draw. This boosted my confidence no end, so I practiced at home. As a direct result of my increased confidence I’ve now enrolled in Art Therapy studies and plan to use this as a one of the modalities in my NDIS and counselling business. Thank you Kerry for your gentle ways of unlocking not just my skills but my confidence too. 


I recently took the Beginner Nature Journaling Workshop with Kerry and it was fantastic! I especially enjoyed the structure of the workshop as each activity built upon the previous one and gave an excellent foundation for the actual nature journaling. Kerry taught me to look at nature and drawing in a completely different way and was very inspirational.
