From embracing imperfection to finding flow, Georgina Hooper explores how the quiet practice of mindful making is intrinsic to true wellbeing.

Making with our hands taps into our innate creativity, and is uplifting, nourishing and soothing for the mind, body and soul. Mindful Thoughts for Artists is a lovingly crafted book of reflections on the joy of making and the journey of self-discovery it can take us on.

Appealing to all artists, this curated collection of 25 reflections encourages creators to live in the moment, to observe the beauty in everything, and above all, to ensure that the creative process is driven by love and enjoyment.
