Wow wow wow. Are you in for a treat. 😍 This week on the Opportunity Knocks podcast I'm chatting with Sheila Darcey, the Founder of SketchPoetic and author of Sketch by Sketch. Sheila's story is everything we celebrate on the Opportunity Knocks podcast.
This story begins with a personal commitment to sketch daily, which soon became a catalyst for transformation. It also led to a greater purpose of elevating art as a tool for self-reflection, self-care, and healing.
Art helped Sheila sketch and paint her way through complex emotions and process conscious and unconscious thoughts. The benefits of this practice became evident in her mental and emotional well-being and a therapeutic tool in helping her process anxiety and trauma. As a result, she made it her mission to share this practice with the world and to help others find their own way.
During our AMAZING conversation, Sheila touches on
🔹 How art can actually heal, mentally and physically
🔹 What it means to listen to your body
🔹 Growing up with trauma and overcoming it
🔹 Sketching vs. drawing 😲
🔹 Personal growth and emotional healing
🔹 The theme of presence and being in the moment
🔹 Perception based on output vs how someone feels 🤯
🔹 Doing vs. being
🔹 Balancing and celebrating body, spirit, emotion, and intellect EQUALLY
🔹 and so much more!
Sheila's passion for what she does and more importantly, helping others heal through art, is palpable, even through a podcast! And that's why her work is so powerful. She lives to help and serve others through her endeavors. It's really really amazing.
