Research shows that art can help to relieve stress and relax your mind. To help spread positivity and inspiration, we collaborated with artists to create artwork reflecting what our motto—shine from inside—means to them.

This week, we connect with artist Clémence Gouy.

Tell us a little bit about you.

I became an artist because life is too short to spend most of your awake time not doing what you love.

How do you support your well-being throughout the day?

I take breaks to watch the street living through the window, sip a cup of jasmine tea or go for a walk.

Why were you excited to partner with Rae? 

This collaboration was very free and inspiring, it meets what I like to convey in my work.

What does ‘shine from inside’ mean to you?

To me, ‘shine from inside’ means finding what makes you feel good and at peace, and radiating with it so it can touch other people. I feel shine when I’m feeling very inspired with new project ideas, connecting with other creatives and enjoying the sun on my skin after a long day.
