Weekly Reminder 3/17

This is your friendly reminder to:
1. Explore art-making with child-like curiosity: answer every single “what if?” that makes a guest appearance in your head and see what happens.

2. Engage your senses: paint with your fingers, listen to the sound the scraper makes on the paper, feel the joy that comes from not using traditional tools.

3. Embrace the oops: go with the flow if paint spills over your page or you mistakenly add too much water, or you tear more than you meant to…letting go of perfection is one of the hardest things you can do.

Most of all, enjoy the process of creating — it’s the only thing that matters.

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.
