And they are questions we explore in this interview today.
In this episode, Sandra Lawrence interviews teacher turned artist and painter, Sarah Tomlinson, aka Girl With Many Secrets, from Vancouver, Canada.
Sarah is someone who has survived domestic abuse and turned her art in an opportunity to heal and help others.
Sarah shares her experience, revealing how, as a relatively new artist she sold her first painting and how she uses morning routines, affirmations and creative blocks as methods towards finding her truest, creative, self.
