“A lot of my inspiration comes from personal experience and from my story. I think that most of the inspiration you need can be found within–and can be found within your own story, so that’s a really good spot to start.”

"Creativity is looking at whatever your parameters might be, circling them, studying them, poking at them, stretching them, turning them inside out and right side back in an endless game of configuration. Creativity is seeing everything as pliable. It’s the opposite of complacency. It’s curiosity with a 'what if we try...'." - Lisa Nading

Diana Chao is a multi-disciplinary artist & activist passionate about destigmatizing mental health. Read her inspiration for this piece she’s created in honor of #WorldMentalHealthDay:
"There's a Chinese proverb that goes "世间好物不坚牢，彩云易散琉璃脆", loosely translated as "Clouds easily scatter, and glass easily shatter." This piece draws upon the intersection of my Chinese heritage and my years of struggle with bipolar disorder. Like the proverb, the colors in this image reflect the psychedelic vibrancy I sought to exude. But the elegance is staged. Quickly, it fades into inkwash, with my own hands grabbing onto the pieces of myself too blurred in reflection to hold. In the end, it's a glimpse into what bipolar disorder made me believe: that the weight of sorrow drags down all the beauty we try to create. That, as Robert Frost says: "nothing gold can stay.""
"To me, creativity is critical to the formulation of a human connection. It helps us navigate nonlinear spaces where answers and emotions may be otherwise far too complex; it is fundamentally human." -@moonglassstudios

When Mona Chalabi came to the United States to start a new job, she felt trapped on a team that wasn't right for her. She followed her passion - and creative instincts - into a new illustrative career.
"You can fight and fight and fight to be seen. Or you can walk away and try something else... Jobs are like relationships, the hard part is working out how long to fight for them." - @monachalabi

"Everyone has to start somewhere. So keep making work, refine your craft, and don’t be afraid to put your unique voice out into the world.
Also, support your fellow women and lift each other up. There’s enough negativity out there as it is. Surround yourself with people who value community over competition." - @jackieriveraaa
