artistry for the soul
by Linda Dunning Doyle with art by Jacqueline Doyle Allison
About the Book
Mother and daughter Linda Dunning Doyle and Jacqueline Doyle Allison combine their creative voices to author an intimate and unique art book featuring their personal experience with the powerfully healing gift of beauty and how it can transform us. Through personal life history, Linda shares insights which are each illustrated with an original fine art collage that reflects Jacqueline’s artistic response to her mother’s words.
The collaboration not only highlights the significance of beauty but also reminds us of the value of self-expression and the importance of family.
