I believe painting or sketching everyday is a wonderful way to take care of yourself.

It's meditative. It's colorful and melts stress away.

I believe that painting in my sketchbook is the highest form of self-care

Everyday, I carve out a bit of time to paint in my sketchbook. This daily practice is meditative and an important part of my self-care practice. I share sketchbook inspiration in my Instagram feed daily. Some of the paintings that are created in the sketchbook turn into larger works. I believe a sketchbook practice is a great way to create daily (even if you don't have a lot of time) and give yourself space to work out ideas.

Here's a round-up of sketchbook inspiration, all in one artsy place for you:
