I have wanted to write a book since I was in my early 20s. I always thought I would write a book about living with a mental health issue. Instead, I wrote a book about art — a beginner acrylic painting abstract art book.
My book is helping people, but in a different way. I am not an art therapist, but I do find art to be therapeutic and I enjoy sharing my love of art with others for that reason. Painting is one of my favorite wellness tools.
You can purchase my book from Amazon in both Kindle and paperback versions. Right now my book is the #1 New Release in the “Craft and Hobby Painting” category. In the book you will find eight step-by-step paintings you can follow or use as inspiration. I also discuss supplies, share a painting challenge, and share abstract art tips.
I had so much fun documenting my work for this book and creating the written sections too. I’m looking forward to begin working on my second book and I’m tossing around a couple ideas in my head.
