I've made it a 2024 goal to finally start and finish a sketchbook, and I would love for you to do it with me! I've learned the best way to avoid creative-ruts is to nourish my creativity on a consistent basis, even if it's in small ways. I've found that having a sketchbook is such a wonderful way to maintain your creativity without the pressures of perfectionism, decision paralysis, and overall neglect.

if we ever met or you stumbled upon me online, you might be surprised to know that the artsy and hopeful person you see now wasn't always like this. Back in the day, I was on the edge of dropping out of high school, feeling lost, unsure, and far from the happy person I am today. It wasn't until I discovered my love for photography and painting that things started to turn around, and I began this journey of really figuring myself out.
Life's had its ups and downs, but one thing that's been a constant for me is turning to art. It's been my rock, helping me deal with anxiety, uncover more about myself, and find a real passion for life. I've made it my mission to help others catch that same excitement. I truly believe anyone can tap into their creativity, and everyone deserves that chance.
"art has truly changed my life"
"I have been following Arastasia for YEARS and find her SO incredibly inspiring! In recent years she started offering art classes and I was so incredibly excited because I'm an artist myself wanting to get better at my own craft with painting!! And of all the artists I follow, she's the only one who offers such amazing online, easy to follow classes for beginners and experienced artists alike. And has such an amazingly positive personality that's completely infectious. Just from the 2 classes I've done with her, I learned so much!! And hope to do more in the future"
