Nourish Your Soul
Nurturing is cultivating and fostering relationships and connections within ourselves. When we take steps to care for ourselves, we gain the strength to care for others.
Women have the gift of being natural nurturers who can multitask by juggling the roles they identify in family, career, and community. However, deep down in their conscience, they long for tranquility and moments of peace but often turn it down.
Women often downplay to prioritize self-care or well-being because they feel obligated to provide care and support to others and shy away from setting boundaries.
In many instances, they find it difficult to say it's okay to take a break, it's okay to ask for help, or it's okay to indulge in self-care because they feel guilty.
As a woman, a mother, a wife, an artist, and various roles that I identify myself in my family and community, I honor my self-care time through art making.
I make art to find my inner peace, and I hope others will experience it through my art.
Nourish Your Soul
Social media is an excellent platform for sharing work and making connections. Also, it's unbelievable how fast it can swallow my time for the instant gratification I experience scrolling through posts, stories, and reels. One thing that has never bothered me is obsessing over the likes and views. I am glad I can work around them without getting emotionally attached.
Practicing art nourishes my soul. The layers of mark-making and collage help me work through chaos, and painting a mandala grounds me and helps me find my inner calm and peace. I find beauty when I am in solitude.
