In this episode, we’re going to be exploring the different ways in which embarking on, what I like to call 'imperfect' creative endeavors (all different kinds), is not only good for our soul, but it’s also incredibly good for our mental health and by extension, our physical health - so it can be a really powerful tool in our holistic wellness toolbox.
My guest today is Jana Oliveira, and she’s a mixed media artist that helps women build artistic skills and find healing and joy through art making. She’s been creating, in one form or another, since 2007, and these days, she spends most of her creative time painting - she produces work in acrylics, watercolors, oils and also mixed media.
We’re having a relaxing and interesting chat - I hope you join us, and that you walk away from this episode feeling super inspired!
