SketchPoetic | About The Artist

What started as a personal commitment to sketch daily, soon became a catalyst for my own transformation. It also lead to my greater purpose of elevating art as a tool for self-reflection, self-care, and healing. Through art, I was able to sketch and paint my way through complex emotions and process both my conscious and unconscious thoughts. The benefits of this practice became evident in my mental and emotional well being. It also became a therapeutic tool in helping process anxiety and trauma. It has become my mission to share this practice with the world and to help others find their own way.

“The beauty of art is in the process of creation itself.  To be in the state of flow allows for unfiltered concepts and thoughts which also serves as a way to connect with others in a way that brings forth your whole self.  I want people to connect with the process as much as the outcome, to create without over-thinking or analyzing, to create without fear, to create without expectations and to create because it’s fun. It’s about being in a safe place to quiet the mind and spark the child-like curiosity we sometimes lose in our busy lives. Ultimately, I hope my art inspires and brings more light to the world.” - Sheila Darcey
