I'm Diana Bluthenthal, the founder and daily creator of Diana Doodles. For three decades, I thrived as a children's book illustrator until a traumatic brain injury altered my life's trajectory. The loss of my artistic career felt like losing a part of myself, but through perseverance and resilience, I discovered a new purpose in supporting my family and rediscovering my passion for art in a new form.

If you've experienced the challenges of life, whether a brain injury or other physical or mental challenge firsthand, or if you know someone who has, you understand the uphill battle it entails. But amidst the struggles, there's hope for a fulfilling life. Let Diana Doodles Daily accompany you on your journey towards healing and self-discovery.

The Journey of Diana Doodles 

After my family's healing journey stabilized, I redirected my passion towards helping others. Despite a nine-year hiatus from drawing and the deficits of my own brain injury, I courageously embraced a new challenge: digital drawing. Over a year and a half, I navigated the steep learning curve of mastering digital programs and tools while creating "Doodles"—simple sketches paired with uplifting messages. The warm and positive response on social media led me to found a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering self-compassion and resilience. Thus, the daily doodles were born. With over 650 doodles created so far, my commitment to this daily ritual underscores its significance.  

My goal is to touch as many hearts as possible
