Take a breath

Press pause
Look up
Notice the clouds
The shades of white
And blue.

Hold on
Close your eyes
Smell the breeze
As it heralds
A change of seasons.

Take a breath
And listen
To the thoughts
Buried deep inside
As they whisper.

Slow down
And ease into
The moments that
Make up your life
As you know it.

Live in the here and now
Laugh with friends and family
Love this fleeting time
And take it easy…
Life is too short to be
Rushed all the time.

Hi there, I am Mansi, a self-taught artist based in Silicon Valley. I was a full-time communications professional for two decades, with a desk job and a six-figure salary until I decided to become a mom. Motherhood, as many will attest, can be extremely exhausting, especially in those first years. Art became my quiet place. It restored my sense of self. It gave me renewed energy. It helped me become a better mom. I was led down the path of creation by instinct and “discovered“ in early 2019 by a fellow kindred spirit at one of my art pop-ups who asked me to join her entrepreneurial venture. While I immersed myself full time in the role of CFO and co-founder of this women-led venture supporting local women makers, I missed experimenting with mixed-media. So, in 2021, I've decided to focus my energies full time in finessing my craft, producing more online tutorials and offering in-person art workshops for both adults and children. Thank you for joining me on this adventure as I experiment, learn and continue creating custom pieces of joy.

  1. Oh my goodness… she will cherish this forever. I have never seen this type of booklet, I can see her tucking little keepsakes in between the secret little spaces. Adorable.
