Missy H. Dunaway is an artist from Maryland. She works mainly with acrylic inks on paper and uses this portable medium as she travels. For the past two years, she has filled Moleskine notebooks with memories, moments, and scenaries from her journeys through the US, Europe, Turkey, and Morocco.

Dunaway received a Bachelor’s Degree in Painting and Material & Visual Culture from Carnegie Mellon University in 2010. In 2013, she won a Fulbright Research Grant for Painting in Turkey to study textiles. She found acrylic ink to be a comfortable and portable medium and decided to use them to record her traveling experiences. Her daily paintings featuring clever, poetic, simple handwritten captions. Her Moleskine journels gradually grew into a breathtaking collection of colorful landscapes, memorable portraits, and extraordinary scenes.

“My paintings focus on color because it describes how a place feels,” Dunaway shares with Travel and Leisure. “Not just mood, but also temperature, time of day, season, and even humidity. It takes several words to explain how a place feels, but a painting can describe it with just one color. It’s simple and immediate.”

It’s amazing to see how Dunaway captures the thoughts and feelings we experience while exploring new places and going on new adventures.

Below are some pages from Dunaway’s journel. Visit her tumblr to see more works or her Etsy shop to buy some prints!
