Certified Life Coach and artist, Sandy Shw



Ever since I was a little girl, I have felt that I was an artist.  I loved to make, create and paint!  This was my most sincere form of play and a source of inner joy.


Being an artist is a core part of who I am, and painting has been an important part of my life.   Yet, in my 30's, I let it slip away.  I had a "real" job.  I was married.  I had kids.  I had a to-do list a mile long!  ... and making time to paint came way at the end of that list.  (If it made it there at all.)  


When I had so much to do, and people to care for, to do something for just the mere pleasure of it seemed unthinkable!  


So, when I was at my low point, I finally took action and hired a life coach.  She instructed me to begin doing things "to fill my inner well."   The first thing I did was pick up a paint brush!  I started out by painting small, simple watercolors in a watercolor journal.  This lead to painting larger pieces, and finally, I made my way back to the canvas!  


I gave myself permission to paint anything that came to me spontaneously - without purpose or judgment.  This is called intuitive or process painting.  It was wonderful!


By honoring my creative intuition and painting whatever came to mind, I began to make a connection back to my true self.  I honored myself by acting on my instincts.  So, if I instinctively felt like painting the grass orange, I did so!  By tapping into my creative source and letting it flow freely, I began to build trust within myself.  My higher-self could trust that I would listen to its faint whispers and honor them.  Soon, the whispers grew louder and louder, and I could clearly hear what my soul was calling out for. This was my road from being lost to being found again.  


Today, even though I am passionate about being a life coach and empowering women (whatever their unique road may be), and still have a busy life, I am committed to myself and make time to paint daily.


Here, I am honored to share with you my artwork.
