37. Connecting to authentic vibes with Bohie

Bohie is a multidisciplinary artist, muralist and typographer who's been in the game since 2013, doing creative commissions, exhibitions, and commercial briefs.  Bohie has had wild success, but she's also battled with mental health challenges and the anxiety of finding her own authenticity in a world where she has had to fight to find her voice. Through this experience, however, she's become somewhat of a self-care master, identifying the characters within herself and using them in her art to better understand herself and the world.  Bohie online: https://bohie.com.au/ https://www.instagram.com/bohie/ Music by: Purple Planet Music
