Diana Hollingsworth Gessler (dgessler)
Diana Hollingsworth Gessler teaches workshops on The Art of Illustrated Travel Journaling in the USA and abroad. The Sampler is a collection of journal pages that Diana uses in those workshops to illustrate her various Tips & Tricks for creating charming and joyful journals. It is also a useful visual guide for any student interested in trying illustrated journaling on their own.
Gessler is also the author-illustrator of a series of travel books published by Algonquin Books of New York: Very California, Very Charleston, Very New Orleans, and Very Washington DC. A fifth book, The Sampoerna Legacy, was privately commissioned to document an Indonesian family’s 100-year-old history. Ms. Gessler is also a fine artist and her oils and watercolors have been represented by Shaw Gallery of Naples for several decades.
