Mione Plant is an artist, writer and a recovering perfectionist.
Throughout her decade-long career in engineering, Mione – inspired by The Artist’s Way – took slow and incremental steps to rediscover her creativity while realigning with her curiosities. Eventually Mione left her career to pursue her creativity as a full-time artist.
Today, Mione pulls from her lived experiences and challenges to inspire a body of work rich with meaning and thoughtful transformation. Influenced by her daily practice of morning journaling, Mione weaves both visual and written stories of her personal breakthroughs and discoveries.
Mione believes we are all artists, and paints visual reminders to herself and her viewers to pay attention to the beauty and wonder around us, to listen for and follow our curiosities, and to play.
While her stories hold a consistent undertone of letting go of fear, Mione – inspired by the reconnection with her child-self along with raising her young son – infuses each painting with levity and playfulness. Her work’s signature elements of whimsy and vibrant color palettes harmonize with its accompanying message.
Aided by her time in engineering, Mione blends the left and right brain, creating beautifully mathematical combinations both lovers of structure and playful vibrancy can enjoy.
Mione inspires us to find the artist within; to live a life rich with meaning, curiosity and joy.
