Hillary is a St. Louis native and a registered art therapist. She uses a watercolor journal to support her own mental health. She enjoys creating colorful, fluid images of windows found in the Greater St. Louis area and landscapes of Missouri streams. Painting her surroundings allows her to focus her mind in the present moment to appreciate and acknowledge the here-and-now. She also adds paintings of “meditation animals” to her journal to remind herself and others during times of stress to focus inward and open up your heart.
