At Rae, we’re dedicated to helping you create a wellness routine that’s as unique as you. That’s why we bring you curated inspiration—art, music and more—to help you feel your best throughout the day. This week, we connect with artist Lucy Sherston to reflect what our motto—shine from inside—means to her.

Tell us a little bit about you.

I became an artist because I’ve always felt the compulsion to express myself through drawing. It’s how I process the world around me, taking things in and then making sense of it through my own visual language. It soothes my soul and makes me feel more connected to myself and my surroundings.

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

I carve out time for well-being throughout the day by making time each morning to journal, which helps me get anything out of my head before I begin each day. I also try and make time to take a walk along the beach. I’m very lucky to live by the sea and I feel so grounded by its ever-changing waters and cloud formations.

Why were you excited to partner with Rae? 

I’m excited about this collaboration with Rae because I love their encouragement and support of female artists, alongside their desire to support our health and well-being.

What does ‘shine from inside’ mean to you?

To me, ‘shine from inside’ means being true to yourself, and trying to have a positive impact on those around you. I feel shine when I’ve first had a hot shower, washed, and dried my hair. I feel cleansed of anything the previous day has shown and I am ready to face a new day. I think our own feeling of ‘shine’ is in the little rituals we carry out daily, our grounding practices. I feel it when I sit on my sofa with a bowl of cereal in the first patch of sunlight of the morning.
