Being a role model is encouraging people to explore the healing power of art therapy. When someone struggles to articulate their experience verbally, a paint brush, a pencil, or camera, can serve as a translator of that experience. “Art is the language of the soul”. It speaks in different shapes, colors, and textures. Art therapy is a way for people to share their story visually. I’m pursuing a masters in Creative Arts Therapy because I want to help people find creative relief along their journey.
I feel most at peace when I’m in nature or practicing yoga. As a student, and teacher of yoga, I try my best to practice Ahimsa, to voice compassion for all beings. I started an online vintage shop, called The Poets Clothesline to raise awareness of the impacts of fast fashion and to encourage people to lighten their footprint on this earth.
