Why my Mental Health is fuel to my Art
Have you struggled in the past or recently with Mental Health?
I'm going to be vulnerable here: I do. For the past decade. I can't begin to tell you everything that I tried to help me with my chronic anxiety:
And the list goes on...
I learnt many things with all of these practices. I implemented them and took something positive out of it. But it didn't cured me.
Planning became a therapy for me! Off course it didn't cured me either but oh, does it help! The time I spend planning it's my me time and looking to a finished spread filled with stickers and washi makes me extremely happy- specially when I have motivational stickers all over!
Because mental health is such a topic so close to my heart- I struggle everyday, I understand the pain, the battles, the tears..., I always try to incorporate it in my art.
Teedy (our exclusive character- you can read more about her here) was a breeze of fresh air when I launched it, being so positive and inspirational. Through her I express my pain, my vision of a life without feeling rubbish all the time. Through Teedy I live an anxiety free life where I'm happy, confident, fun and loved.
Teedy "I am Enough" Collection
I quickly understood that I needed to embrace my battles and hard struggles in order to transmit to my customers that I get them! Teedy is a connection between my emotional experiences, the strategies that helped me and taught me something positive and your struggles and battles.
My moto is to be able to help, inspire and bring joy and motivation to your life thorough my art. Every design I create has a story, a meaning, a goal behind it. And my intention is always to give you the positive reassurance that you are not alone and life doesn't need to be black and white.
If you too battle mental health and need an inspiration, don't struggle alone! I'm sure Teedy can warm your heart and make you see life in a more bright and sweet way ❤️
