Olwen Wilson is a Pushcart Prize-nominated writer, artist, & creative facilitator who helps people who are drawn to making art and being creative but they don’t feel like they have enough talent or time. She helps them figure out how to make it a part of a regular practice in a way that helps them clear their mind (even for a moment), get better at making decisions and take action.

Having taught self-care practices for over a decade, Olwen’s practiced everything from yoga to energy healing, drumming to meditation. But the one she keeps coming back to the most is visual journaling. It helped her learn to trust herself again after suddenly getting diagnosed with a chronic illness so that she could stop wasting time waiting and worrying about what other people think and go after what’s important in life.

Olwen lives in Canada on the traditional territories of the Neutral, Anishnaabe and Haudenosaunee people.
