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 Rose England.

Tell us a little bit about you.

I became an artist because I truly love what I do. Some of my fondest memories as a child are ones with my grandmother. She is an incredible painter and sewer and had a huge creative influence on me. My passion for art and design began at a very young age because of her. My work is inspired by sun-bleached travels alongside female empowerment.

What does wellness mean to you?

Wellness is important in my life because it brightens my days and helps me live a truly fulfilled life. I practice wellness in my life through meditation and exercise. I love the feeling they both give me; a clear head and a positive mindset—nothing feels better.

Why were you excited to partner with Rae? What are your favorite Rae products?

I am excited about this collaboration with Rae because wellness and feeling positive about yourself is something I am really passionate about. Everyone deserves to feel incredible.

My favorite Rae product is the Sleep Capsules. Sometimes after a long day at work I find it hard to switch off. These capsules calm my mind right down and I drift off into a blissful sleep. I wake the next day feeling refreshed and ready to take on the world.

What does ‘shine from inside’ mean to you? How did this come through in your artwork?

To me, ‘shine from inside’ means feeling beautiful and confident. I represented the concept in my artwork through the female body.

When creating this artwork, I represented passion through the confidence of the body position. The woman is having a moment to herself, feeling incredible and full of positive energy.

We’d love to hear what shine from inside means to you—let us know in the comments!
