I’m Štěpánka [Shtiepa:nka],

an illustrator, artist and the creator behind the Well Perceived blog, inspired by wellness and exploring a nature-connected lifestyle through an insightful perspective of the creative process.

my inspiration


Relaxed, balanced life sustainability and nature connection is an inspiration for my life and so a natural source for anything I set myself up to create and through which I explore up to date topics to enhance wellness values from the close up perspective I am able to bring through my creative process.

Do you want to let show your natural qualities? Do you believe in personal growth, own conscious choice and building better decisions to make wise well-being investments in everyday mindful and sustainable life balancing habits?

When I was eighteen I was diagnosed with asthma. I took it as a part of life but not yet understood that people around me didn´t actually realise how little is enough to “stop breathing”. I didn’t give it much of importance even later, through moving to Ireland and a few years later coming back home. I still used the prescribed medication just as I was told. Every single day. While I had been living unsettled life I couldn’t notice until I started living the typical routine of a corporate office job.  I felt repeating the same pattern of fulfilling expectations of others as they would be prescribed to me. Like I wouldn’t have another choice.

“A constant discomfort is something we can get used to and no one can notice.”

Giving myself the time and little changes to my everyday routines I came to simplicity of seeing things as they are instead of how they appear. My love for drawing, yoga, my explorative trips and something as simple as cooking and being organised about life helped me not to stop wandering in my mind. I became cautious of appealings and conscious of the way I make choices. Making notes of  thoughts and expressions  became a part of my creative process and so I started the Well Perceived blog as a natural progression of my personal growth and work. Today I focus  on writing to uplift the values you have maybe not yet discovered or find a new perspective on your own experience. This way I found infinite inspiration for illustrations you can find in the articles, growing an illustration portfolio, and continual series of artworks.
