Retreat to Recharge

Nurture Series






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. 


Retreat to Recharge

  • It's a joy to show up and do my daily art practice. 


    It can be either working on a painting, exploring with materials, or creating something without intention.


    Some of the best ideas pop up when I do chores around the house, driving, or showering, and sometimes I note them down before they fade away.


    I like to retreat from creating for weeks to let new ideas come in and go. 


    I take my time to mull over my thoughts, write them down, and visualize how I can put them together. 


    My thinking break helps me recharge my creativity into action.
