Feel Good Art was founded by Lynne Lawer after she was ill with depression and anxiety. She discovered that there are many people who also have mental health challenges.

She realised her love of designing – using affirmations, Switchwords and interlinked words on the themes of love, health & fitness and wealth & money – could help others to overcome their problems. She is currently working on a colouring book.

She is very interested in how the mind works as well as spiritual and alternative methods of healing, and she incorporates this knowledge into her designs. She has loved making colourful fractals (computer art based on repeating patterns that are created from mathematical formulae) for several years. She is now combining them with affirmations to make completely original and unique designs for videos, printables and mugs.

  1. Hi Lynne,

    Great to connect with you!

    I’m Jo – artist, writer, traveller, mental health advocate, music lover, wild west nut intrigued by science, and renaissance soul with a potty sense of humour. I’ve miraculously recovered from thirty years of depression – a medication crisis was the catalyst, I’ve never felt this good – and I’m chronicling the rebuild of my polymath and adventurous, creative life on my blog, Creating My Odyssey.

    I’m networking with creatives and reaching people with a voice, and those with depression in particular, to show that this illness is the most treatable of mental health issues. Purely by enormous good chance through my medication crisis and wonderful neighbours, we met the brilliant mental health team, who, with a combination of medication (known as California Rocket Fuel- love it!) and cognitive behavioural therapy, brought me to where I am now. Which proves that provided sufferers know where to look, help is available. That’s the hard part, which shouldn’t be the case.

    Creating My Odyssey is a great vehicle for my creativity – writing (anecdotal articles – many of which have been published , and my epic novel) and art – and also covers a myriad of eclectic subjects. I’m unleashing everything that was previously hidden under a bushel, and I’ve had articles published on mental health sites.

    I’m also posting blog links on my site and would love to exchange links and guest posts with other bloggers, particularly on mental health issues, so if you’re interested, I’d love to hear from you. Also, if possible, to collaborate with creatives. Possibly exchange blog posts about creative lives and biz, whatever ideas anyone may have. I’m open to (almost!) anything!

    I’ve also been writing my humongous novel forever, on and off, particularly during young parenthood and depression, to help keep me sane. Alias Jeannie Delaney is the life story of a devastating cowgirl who’s the fastest gun in the west and also bisexual. Since my recovery from depression I’ve decided it’s time to get it out there! I’m blogging about it on my site.

    Thank you so much for reading!

  2. Hi Jo,

    Good to hear from someone who has suffered from mental health challenges and overcome them.

    I’ve been running a Facebook group, Feel Good Group Essex (https://www.facebook.com/groups/647438875445693), for about five months and I share uplifting quotes, arts and crafts videos, jokes, animal videos, as well as local news and events, and occasionally coping skills, other people’s descriptions of what it feels like to have a mental health challenge, exercise videos and cookery videos. I post anything that I think people will find funny, uplifting and/or interesting. Anyone can join, whether they have depression and anxiety or not, and regardless of where they live. I try to be open about my mental health problems so that people know they are not the only ones going through it and I share things that have helped me even if they are a bit “out there” such as healing through connecting to consciousness and shifting energy.

    My (couple of days old) Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/FeelGoodArtEssex/

    I’m still in the process of getting my business up and running, organising adverts/Facebook posts, doing more designs for products and adding them to my site, along with feeling overwhelmed and not being able to do much except sleep for a couple of days (I’ve learned that I can’t deal with too much at a time now and, if I overdo it, I have to wait until I feel I can cope again).

    Exchanging blog posts sounds like a good idea and I think that would be a possibility in the New Year. (Ooh, I just rhymed that. I haven’t done a poem for ages! 🙂 )

    I haven’t put much on this blog yet but I did post on https://lynnesartandsoul.wordpress.com for a couple of years. I’m not sure how you found me but that blog would give you an idea of what I am like.

    Thank you for contacting me.

    Lynne

  3. Hello Lynne!

    I’m so sorry I haven’t responded earlier. I must come and look at your Facebook group and look at your other blog.

    I’d love you to send me a blog post about how you manage your depression. That would be brilliant! Thank you so much. And yes, you’re a poet and you didn’t know it!

    I found you by browsing on Google then subscribed to your blog. I’m currently unsubscribing from some of my zillions of newsletters, but will definitely be keeping yours! And I really look forward to hearing from you again, Lynne.

    Jo, Hampshire

  4. Hello Jo,

    Thanks for getting back in touch with me. It’s absolutely fine that you haven’t responded earlier. I’ve been busy trying to get everything sorted out and looking half-decent. I’m gradually getting there but it has been a very steep learning curve so far!

    I totally understand about the zillions of newsletters. I currently have over 5,000 emails in my inbox! I think I need to do a bit of decluttering. 😉 It’s very flattering that you want to stay subscribed to my newsletter. I hope you will find it interesting and useful.

    I didn’t think anyone would be able to find this blog yet. I’ve hardly done anything on it, lol. I’ll try to get a blog post done for you this weekend and send it to you by email. 🙂

    Lynne
