Today, we have a wonderful, refreshing conversation with the very talented, Kate Allan. She is an author, artist, and creator of the mental health art blog, The Latest Kate. She draws and writes with gentle comfort and encouragement about the trials and tribulations of life. A Southern California transplant, she enjoys anything bright, fluffy, or colorful, as can be seen in her work. When she isn’t endeavoring to soak up every ray of sunshine, she works as a freelance designer and illustrator. Check out some of her art below!
In today’s conversation with Kate, we cover her journey with mental health, how her art blog began, some of the tips/tricks that she has learned to maintain mental wellness, and the idea that you and I should be more kind to ourselves.
Her book, You Can Do All Things: Drawings, Affirmations, and Mindfulness to Help With Anxiety and Depression, is available for purchase on Amazon (click here).
