What would happen if you gave yourself the space to slow down, listen, and allow yourself to play? If you feel like you’ve been forcing an outcome in your work or your life, then episode 148 of the Lead with Love podcast is for you.
In this episode, I get cozy with Kimothy Joy.
Kimothy Joy is a Denver-based artist who is passionate about creating artwork that uplifts and empowers women & girls. She partners with like-minded individuals like Melinda Gates, Reese Witherspoon’s HelloSunshine media team and others to create social-awareness campaigns that inspire thought and action.
Specializing in watercolor and ink drawings, she often paints portraits of heroines of past and present. Kimothy is the author of a book that was personally gifted to me, “That’s What She Said: Wise Words from Influential Women” published by HarperWave.

That's what she said by Kimothy Joy
The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible by Charles Eisenstein
“I think I’m listening from a loving place and just hearing what’s going on in the ether and in the world, and that inspires what I feel called to sit down and paint. Usually it’s because I feel like there’s an aspect of love missing from the conversation, so that’s what I want to sit down and put on paper.” [4:24]
“After I graduated I just kind of followed the digital path. I enjoyed it, but it just didn’t feel the same as working with my hands and painting.” [8:52]
“I just learned as I got older that if you just sit with the pain and get quiet, process, work through it and trust the process, that there’s a beautiful transformation that can occur in you.” [14:47]
“Make that space to be alone and just get really good at tuning in to your intuition. You never know what you’re going to hear, or what ideas are going to come.” [22:38]
“Respecting the humanity, dignity and potential of all people, that’s what I feel called to do.” [40:59]
