NOUN: In design and illustration, whitespace is the portion of the page left unmarked, unfilled.
It is not merely "blank" space — it is an important element of design that enables the objects in it to exist cohesively. In life, it is the balance of busy and relaxed, work and down time.
Sometimes it takes a great big boom to spur a metamorphosis. Other times, it's just about returning to the place you once were, slowly, somewhat haphazardly, and yet purposefully all at once.
Whitespace + Wellness is about my return to my true self after a series of less than fortunate events. But I consider myself fortunate, for it was those encounters, that series of disasters, that led me here, to you.
My editorial scope is simple. Share my journey and offer encouragement to keep us living our best life. Smoothie recipes will abound. Yoga tips and mantras will flow freely. I was an overworked entrepreneur (more on my professional life can be found at Bats on Strings), but I’m proud to say I’ve found the balance that eluded me for so long, and I hope to help you find it, too.
I encourage dialogue. Share with me, please. Tell me what you think, where you've been, what you learned. We only have one chance at this life. Let's fill it with whitespace and wellness and spread joy with each passing day.
Follow me on Instagram and join me on a daily journey to more whitespace + wellness. Here I also share my adventures as a Creative Director and Social Media Guru.
