Our Story


We began our humble journey as a photography community blog, (The Artistic Tog), founded by a soulful photographer...passionate about inspiring everyone from amateur to professional. As her passion grew, she began to open herself to many other mediums that were once only dreams. 

After a year of battling the hard decision of closing the blog due to feeling restricted to one type of art, she decided to REINVENT it...and The Artistic Soul was born.

Shay R, the creatress of The Artistic Soul, realized she wasn't just a photographer, bound to sharing only photography inspiration. She was an artist who had so much more to offer! The Artistic Soul is all about embracing every part of your creativity. We welcome all artists and recently have welcomed small shops and businesses to come collaborate and promote their products with us.

Our Purpose

It's simple.

We are trying to help change the world...one positive, artful message at a time. We feature artists and small businesses in hopes of inspiring our audience to learn, grow, dream big, and achieve their goals

As a new business, we pledge, 10% of our profits to charities and other organizations. To be added to our list, please email us at charity@theartisticsoul.org for more information. We are also launching our first charity donation program for youth, this summer! Stay tuned!

The Artistic Soul was created as an inspirational community for all artists to connect, create, and collaborate; but more importantly, share our love for art. We feature artists around the world on The Artistic Soul Blog and our Facebook Page

We uplift, empower and INSPIRE!
