Jess Rachel Sharp
Jess Rachel Sharp is a designer and writer based in West Yorkshire, UK. Focusing on Mental Health, her designs aim to act as comforting reminders for when you need them most. Jess began writing and designing after beginning therapy. She wanted to remember all the wise words and epiphanies she was having, so began to write them down and hasn’t stopped since.
How did you start making art that empowers people?
I began creating the art I do now whilst going through quite a difficult time. I had been signed off work with depression and had just begun seeing a therapist. Whilst working through everything with my therapist I began writing down the affirmations and ideas that I needed to remember and it all progressed from there. The real turning point was when other people started to connect with the messages too - I’ve not stopped since!
What do you do to self-care?
Self care for me is a lot of sleep! If I’m feeling off or not quite right I always try and get some good long sleeps in. This may sound boring but I also find getting some batch cooking done and out the way helps. Then on days when I’m not feeling my best I know I have some healthy meals ready in the freezer to fill me with goodness. My favourite thing to do though is a nice long hot bath, painting my nails, getting into clean pajamas and fresh bed sheets.
