I’m McKella Sawyer; an artist, writer, bookworm, wisdom junkie, creative healing enthusiast and wife living in Orem, Utah. I also love dark chocolate with sea salt, climbing trees, and rock and roll. In fact, I’m rocking out to AC/DC at this very moment.
I’ve been an artist all my life. I spent most of my imaginative childhood either outside pretending I was Pocahontas or a mermaid, or inside writing stories and sketching surreal scenes with colored pencils. I’m inspired by the seasons, trees, nature and beautiful landscapes, light, celestial bodies, ancient cultures, emotions and creative healing.
All my life, I’ve used art as means of expression during challenges. I truly believe that art heals the soul because it helps us understand ourselves and deal with emotions that we may not know how to handle otherwise. I’ve found that both creating art and being surrounded by it enhances my life, and I’d love the share that experience with you.
Each piece of art is the result of a lesson I’ve learned (or that I’m learning), an emotion or positive shift in my life. I feel that these experiences are universal, and I’d love for my art to serve as beautiful, positive reminders of these messages.
In the spirit of authentic and creative blogging, Handprint Soul has evolved a lot with me during its life. This is my space to share the lessons I learn, my struggles, and the pieces of my life that end up in my creations. Our souls are as unique as our handprints, and this little corner of the internet is a piece of mine.
