Get to know Jan, The Joy Artist!
I am excited to share my artistic expressions with you.
I have been looking back at where I was and where I am headed. It was my sister-in-law who reminded me that when we first met, I wanted to be a greeting card designer.
My own healing journey led me down the path to become a healing touch practitioner and then a certified wellness coach. My clients mostly needed help learning to add self-care to their very busy schedules. My Moments of Delight self-care cards(Now called Mindful Moments) were my first project, helping others to reclaim their worthiness five minutes at a time. This led me to find my passion in creation- drawing, painting, playing with color, just being willing to have fun.
It was a decision to write a year of thank you notes that spurred me to create handmade cards to send to friends and loved ones. While I didn’t send one a day, I did send out over 200 cards that year. And my business, selling hand-designed cards, gifts and prints, was born.
I have continued to grow on my own journey through art therapy. My own experiences are often translated into art pieces to share. I want that joy and my healing energy to spread into the world, one creation at a time.
Recently, I have felt a pull to creating small pieces of art and inspiration that may help others heal. My own health journey, which continues to be a journey, inspires me to create touchstones for people to remember they are worthy of healing.
Colorado is my home and I love spending time with my husband and family.
