MEET OUR ARTISTS
Hi! I'm Meghan, a graphic designer from Philadelphia. My passion for self care and love for the arts led me to Self Care is for Everyone. I realized the importance of self love when a close person to me developed an eating disorder at a young age. It was clear to me where I wanted to put my energy in this world– encouraging others to find love within. It's a tough feat, but it makes me so happy seeing someone feelin' themselves in one of my designs! When I'm not creating, I'm probably napping, doing yoga, or awkwardly trying to pet someone's dog.
How did you start making art that empowers people?
Art and design have always meant a lot to me in regard to letting out my emotions. I have been doing it for a bit just in my free time. I have also always been a huge advocate for women’s mental health and the promotion of positive body images, so when I came across this opportunity I knew I had to get involved. If my design could inspire even one person to love themselves and take care of themself, then I’ve succeeded!
What do you do to self-care?
I only recently realized how much more I need to work on self-care. I have always been a busy person, having a lot on my plate and that became really overwhelming. So, what I learned is that I need to put my mental health first, ahead of some opportunities. I make sure that I leave time each day to sit with myself and gather my thoughts. Spending time listening to music and scrolling through Pinterest is where I’m happiest so now I tell myself that I need that time for my own good. I also drink a lot of peppermint tea, stretch, face-mask, and read books about living a simple life. I’m currently reading Ikigai by Hector Garcia and Francesc Miralles, it’s teaching me a lot about living a relaxed life while working hard at what you’re passionate about. That kind of stuff helps me a lot :)
