The way you deal with life’s trials and triumphs is the heart of your life story. Atlas helps you to navigate these experiences with courage and grace.
… and that’s exactly how this started. With an cracked open heart and a deep desire to find a way to process this life, founder Sarah Nelsen began to do something she hadn’t done in years–sketching and writing for the pure release that it brought to her. As an established art director and owner of a boutique graphic design studio, for over a decade, her sketching was usually just for design purposes, for a client, for work. This new habit of creating, though, was different, it was bringing her closer to her essence and closer to God.
After a trying couple years, she strove for more meaning in the mess. Frustrated with the sympathy an encouragement section of the the card store, Nelsen began creating her own art print cards with thoughtfully written messages rooted in scripture and laced with courage, grace, and healing. After several friends saw her work and asked for custom pieces for their loved ones experiencing difficult circumstances, she began to develop the pieces further.
The name, Atlas, simply comes from the human need to have a source to guide you on life’s journey. Atlas Art Press encourages people to NAVIGATE UPWARDS through its art and messages for supporting loved amid difficulty. Nelsen uses her own writings as well as partnering with other writers, therapists, and those on a mission to communicate courage and grace.
