The Creative Minimalism Journey Begins

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

Thanks for joining me! I’m starting this blog to share about my creative, minimalist life. I’ll cover topics about nurturing creativity, my art and design processes, my productivity hacks, and my minimalist practices and habits.

For most of my life, I’ve been more of a maximalist, but at the same time, I’ve routinely tried to focus on essentials and edit out habits and things that weren’t working. Then, in 2020, I discovered The Minimalists, and I began to make a number of changes that have made life SO much better while allowing my creativity to thrive.

While some people are more creative with a messy desk, studio, or workspace (and I certainly have those at times, especially in the middle of creating something), making space and simplifying my life have been beneficial to my work. I’m looking forward to sharing some of the practices and tips that have worked for me, and I would love to hear what you do to simplify your life and nurture your creativity!
