Hello Wonderful, Creative You!
Thank you so much for visiting Mindful Art Studio. I’m Amy, an artist based in Massachusetts. I created Mindful Art Studio because I wanted to share all that I know about the healing power of art for ANYONE and EVERYONE. I work with people from all over the world who don’t think of themselves as artistic but want a creative outlet for stress relief, and artists who want to learn to be more playful, authentic, and insight-oriented in their art making. We can ALL use art to know ourselves, understand and transform our feelings, and PLAY.
Art journals are an amazing outlet for creativity, venting, and playful self-exploration. I’d love to share them with you. Whether you are brushing on paint to let off steam, doodling away your worries, or digging into your deep personal images, art journaling is a forgiving and accessible art form.
I keep an art journal out on my table with some supplies, and it tempts me to spend at least a few minutes a day exploring the worlds that appear on the page, and figuring out what I really need and want in my life. It’s grounding, freeing, and playful. You can learn more about art journaling here.
There IS time and space for creativity in your life, I can help you find it. It’s what I call creative self-care. Reach out using the form below and we can talk about how I can help you, or you can join the Mindful Art Studio community for weekly tips in art journaling, take one of my online classes, read Starting Your Art Journal, or explore a personal art mentoring relationship with me where I can help you develop a personalized plan for your artistic discovery and growth.
