Inspired by Frida Journal

Illustrated by Akal Pritam

The Inspired by Frida Journal draws from the wisdom and artwork of Frida Kahlo. The 200 decorative pages are divided into eight sections that encourage exploration of the concepts of freedom, reverence, inspiration, dharma and acceptance. The beautiful full-colour illustrations, poetry, positive affirmations and words of inspiring wisdom throughout the journal encourage creative self-expression, self-reflection and exploration of your creative destiny. This is your journal: use it to write and rewrite your creative destiny, to tell the love story of YOU. Fill the pages with your essence, your love, your hopes and all your very precious heart dreams. Write and draw on the pages at will: over the art and through the pages with paint, collage and doodles. Play, daydream and pour out all of your wild untamed ideas.

* Created by dharma artist Akal Pritam, the Art Journal Collection meets an ever-increasing desire by people to work through their own healing journey, self-reflection and the realisation of true creative destiny.
* These full-colour, beautifully illustrated journals are designed to inspire creative engagement and positive self-expression. Full page illustrations with poetry, positive affirmations, self-awareness prompts and self-nurture guidance flow through the journal and are interspersed with lined and blank pages.

Akal Pritam’s life as a dharma artist began in early childhood, when she displayed a natural talent for communication. She has worked as a fashion art director both in Australia and internationally. In the mid 1990s Akal completely changed her approach to life, practising yoga and meditation and studying metaphysics and healing with whole foods, and writing many internationally successful books. Akal and her life partner created an organic, raw food, vegan cafe and well-being store that attracted many souls who wanted to self-nurture and reclaim their health. Akal created ranges of raw vegan food and chocolate, aromatherapy, herbal and chai teas and unique gifts, and ran workshops on plant-based living, self-healing practices, aromatherapy and the chakras. Living with her family in wild and beautiful Byron Bay in northern New South Wales, Australia, Akal is now focused on creating unique books, gift products and art that is food for the soul.

Her work resonates with a diverse range of individuals and inspires them to self-love and grow the light of their own soul. ‘Your life is meant to feel good, it is meant to be fun and it is meant to be exciting. You are a most wonderful, beautiful human being; it’s time to realise this and take a deeper journey to self-love.’
