ORIGIN Magazine Illustration Feature

I recently teamed up with ORIGIN Magazine for an interview and feature on my Illustrations and lifestyle.

Q: 4 Life-changing practices

A: Mindfulness, sustainability, minimalism, and wellness are the four life-changing practices that helped me get to where I am. Without them, I would have been stuck in the old pattern of consumption, mindlessness and toxic habits. I was able to arrive in this moment of peace and calm because I accepted the need for healing. So many of us resist healing and wellness because we are afraid of exppsing our vulnerabilities and negative emotions. But without true acceptance of our dark side, we cannot porperly open ourselves to healing. We cannot move forward and invite positive change when we continually resist a part of us. For me, I used meditation, Emotional Freedom Technique and the Healing Code for self-reflection. They have helped me through tough times and I continue to incorporate them into my daily practice. These techniques led me to explore different tools like Zero-waste and minimalism to deepen my healing practice.

Q: Books and authors I love

A: I received so much wisdom from my teacher Thich Nhat Hahn, who taught me about mindfulness and Zen Buddhism. I also have deep respect for Abraham Hicks, advocate for the Law of Attraction. My favorite book is Ask and It Is Given. I also love Anthony William’s Medical Medium, which has inspired me to become a Fruitarian and Raw Vegan.

Sustain Yearly Guide to a Sustainable Lifestyle

It’s finally here! The Sustain Yearly guide to a sustainable lifestyle. I am so happy to contribute to this year’s edition. It’s packed with thought-provoking articles from people with a green lifestyle. And it has all the best tips for sustainable living and plant-based recipes. And best of all, it came in a plastic-free packaging all the way from Denmark. The paper is from responsibly grown trees and forest. And it’s printed with plant-based ink on compostable paper.

Hygge Everyday Illustration Book by MONSA

I had the chance to work with Gemma Villegas from MONSA Publications, a print agency based in Barcelona, Spain. Hygge Everyday is an illustrated diary on minimalist lifestyle (based on austerity, moderation and unattachment to the material world), mindfulness (the unprejudiced focus on the present moment), and the Danish concept of hygge (the feeling of wellness in a happy, cosy and warm setting). The book stand out for their ability to evoke places and spaces: inside and out, private and public. They reveal the places in which we move, think and live.

I am happy to be featured alongside with talented Illustrators. Some of my favorite works are by Ginnie Hsu, Josefina Schargoridsky and  Miranda Sofroniou.
