After years of devastating pregnancy losses that mirrored a lackluster art career, Josie Lewis gave up. She gave up trying to grow her family and gave up trying to be an artist. She began to focus on the most elementary elements of art, like color and texture, and learned that the resulting flow state helped her work through the grief. When she put process videos of her work online, she discovered a global audience. Learn more about art, grief, and flow in this beautiful and inspirational talk. Josie Lewis is an artist working in sculpture, painting, mixed media, and video. Her artwork can be found in the St Paul Union Depot, the Minneapolis/St Paul Airport, and in the private collections of General Mills, University of Minnesota, and Minneapolis Public Schools. In 2017, she began sharing videos of her daily art practice on Instagram, sparking a conversation around what is (and is not) art on the internet. To date, her videos have more than 1 billion views, and her social media audience has grown to over 1.3 million followers. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
