The work we do as artist can be a painstaking task. The challenges we face in a competitive, elitist and often toxic industry often go unnoticed by those around us, especially those who consume our art. Tending to your wellbeing as an artist is fundamental. Your art cannot exist if you are not well enough to make it.
My goal is to bring wellness counselling into the arts while also holding a firm understanding that there are many aspect of the industry which need updating and changing before we can see any real change. Still, we can care for ourselves and advocate for our welfare no matter what.
