Instagram's world of memes can be full of surprises. Every day we scroll our timelines double-tapping photos of our friends, favorite celebrities, and funny videos.
But, sometimes you come across accounts that are creative, passionate, and refreshing.
As a lover of art, it's always cool to see creatives who use their art for good.
This week I'd like to introduce five amazing digital creators who have built powerful online platforms sharing inspiring messages through art.
Orginally, when someone speaks of art you would think of paintings featured in a museum. Today, these digital art designers have turned words into motivating "pick me up" messages that burst with colors.
Their art quotes could be shared to help bring comfort to those in need.
May their art inspire you to see the beauty in everyday life.

Art of My Own
Although I don't create colorful digital art like these wonderful ladies, I enjoy being able to inspire in a different way.
Through candle-making I spread positive messages to those around me and afar.
