Welcome to
The Art of Getting Over It

Meet the Artist: Abby

Allie Donaldson

Allie, aka Taogoi, is our adventurer and author. After years of strugging with Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD), her grandmother dying pushed her into a deep depression. She decided she would try long distance hiking on the Pacific Crest Trail,  having never backpacked before. Hiking and writing poetry under the name Taogoi, she learned some hard lessons of the trail; from pushing through white outs and processing over 10 years of trauma along the way. 

The blog she maintains on the site is about the process of healing through physical and creative outlets.

Abby Folsom does the illustrating for Taogoi. She loves to play in all sorts of mediums and subjects, and has found focus with the upcoming book, doing black and white linework. Becoming a part of this project has helped her grieve and be more at peace with losing her sister in 2018. On her website, you can order custom hydro flasks, prints, postcards and more!
