Our Shecosister Christine Pensa helps heal with art

Name: Christine Pensa

Business: Art That Moves

Title: Owner


What is at the heart of your business?

I’m a visual artist who joyfully runs Om for your home, a line of textiles and illustrations—and—I’m a passionate way-shower helping people connect with their artist within by offering art+soul classes.


Why did you join a women’s coworking and wellness community?

I have loved being part of the Shecosystem meetups and want to continue to meet engaging and delightful women.


What do you wish to give and/or receive from this community?

I would be happy to share my inspirations and sources, and, my art+soul wellness ideas. I have already met, supported, and collaborated with other women in their work and business and hope to continue to be able to do so.


What does thriving look like for you?

Continuing to find joy in what I do, continuing to grow myself, and reaching out to connect more and more people with their own artist within as a tool for healing.


Shecosystem’s core values are: openness, community, collaboration, accessibility, sustainability, feminism, and wellness. Which of these resonates most with you and why?

It’s difficult to pick one, but I think perhaps collaboration is the one I like best. As an artist who often works alone, I know the power of creative fireworks. This is the kind of alchemy that can only http://bestacnedrug.com happen when people come together to collaborate with open hearts.


Tell us one way you integrate self-care into your working life:

Part of it is that I often work alone. I know working quietly creating is a huge healer for me. I feel blessed to be able to create days for myself. Days I can rise without an alarm clock, take the measure of my day, and create something new.


What’s your top piece of advice for other women entrepreneurs?

Sharpen your skills of discernment, and don’t assume anything. Being open to new ways of doing things allows fresh air to keep flowing through your business.


Anything else we should know about you?

I am a visual artisoul-colouringst who joyfully runs Om for your home, my line of printed textiles and original illustrations from my Toronto, Ontario studio.


Because I am open to new ways of doing things, I became the co-creator and illustrator of, The Soul Discovery Colouring Book, published by Conari Press in 2016.


I am a passionate “way-shower” sharing art+soul classes with adults and kids. I believe everyone should reclaim their mark making delight, and I love creating space for joy-filled, judgement-free art explorations.
