Empowering the community through
Education, Advocacy, Live Painting, and Charity.
After several years as an Afterschool care provider and Summer Camp Administrator, I have turned my efforts to raising awareness of mental health and wellness to young people through creative workshopping and guest lecturing.
I have conducted workshops/lectures from Kindergarten to the University level. Each lesson focusing on drawing as a mechanism to healthily outlet feelings and/or navigate through emotions. Curriculums focus on the significance of mark making and how to utilize them along side technical artistic elements.
Pre-COVID, I would frequently live paint at festivals, markets, and at other public spaces/events. As much as its important to teach and push advocacy, I also believe that being present and vulnerable with your creative process is inspiring for a lot of people. If I am vending at events, expect me to have an easel up! If I'm having coffee at a coffee shop, expect me to have drawing you can look over at!
In the year of 2020, I have dedicated every other month to raising money toward various charities. I hold an online benefit concert featuring 16 different musicians across the globe. Each concert lasts about 5 hours and is hosted on my Twitch channel.
Below are all the charities/organizations I have raised money for in the year 2020:
