I am a simple latina creative born out of the beautiful city of Long Beach. My poetic heart naturally advocates for mental health awareness, as I personally battle my own mental health hurdles. I passionately believe that there is a connection between creative expression and mental health. I am fascinated by the concept of artistic expressions and have created this site with the hopes to inspire others to stretch their artistic muscles. My fascination with the concept of self-therapy is what lead me to create this site with the hopes to inspire others to stretch their artistic muscles in order to deeper understand themselves. Using this passion, I hope to spread awareness on the importance of mental health, and how it correlates with physical health. This is why I believe daily practice in mental and physical self-care is vital to our overall well being.
“Artistic expressions are an essential tool in mental health; it can help us communicate to others that which we have no words for…” – Melissa Gomez
