I am a registered counselor, TIR (Traumatic Incident Reduction) practitioner as well as a formally trained fine art artist. In my years of counselling I have also worked with people on a creative level where I use art as a way of communicating when words fail and emotions are deep, I have seen the amazing benefits teaching people creative thinking and give them the space to express themselves using art facilitation. Art supplies are very expensive and I also take care of my daughter who has autism as well as an intellectual disability so for that reason my income does not cover the supplies, and startup capital that I need to fully operate my Art facilitation.
The process of making art has always been something that I used personally to help me through down days and harder times it is also something I taught my daughter and the positive impact that art had on her life is truly something to marvel at, it has given me a new perspective on life and that is another reason why I would love to create a sustainable business where I can share this passion and help other families in their healing process. With the startup capital I will be able to fully setup a studio and do the marketing that is needed to get Art & Soul off the ground. Thank You.
