hot mess of an adult that laughed, cried, & painted my way through my 20's


hello sunshine

i'm arastasia

i've made it my mission to inspire people to embrace creative joys and heal through art.

if we ever met or you stumbled upon me online, you might be surprised to know that the artsy and hopeful person you see now wasn't always like this. Back in the day, I was on the edge of dropping out of high school, feeling lost, unsure, and far from the happy person I am today. It wasn't until I discovered my love for photography and painting that things started to turn around, and I began this journey of really figuring myself out.
Life's had its ups and downs, but one thing that's been a constant for me is turning to art. It's been my rock, helping me deal with anxiety, uncover more about myself, and find a real passion for life. I've made it my mission to help others catch that same excitement. I truly believe anyone can tap into their creativity, and everyone deserves that chance.

Welcome to my creative world!

I am a passionate and resilient creative entrepreneur who has embarked on a journey shaped by adversity and a thirst for self-discovery. From a young age, I found solace and inspiration in the artistic realm, using it as a powerful tool to navigate through the chaos of life and heal from childhood trauma.

Today, I proudly wear multiple hats as a mural artist, a photographer, an advocate for creative therapy, and a source of inspiration for those seeking their truest selves. With a paintbrush in hand and a camera at the ready, I strive to spread the joys of creative expression, guiding others to embrace the transformative power of painting while nurturing their mental health, overcoming perfectionism, and embracing authenticity.

Acrylics have become my medium of choice, allowing me to translate emotions and stories onto the canvas with vibrant hues and intricate brushstrokes. But my love for the arts extends beyond painting alone. I have developed a profound fascination for marketing and branding, utilizing these skills to showcase the essence of my creations and connect with a wider audience.

While my journey hasn't been without its challenges, including nearly dropping out of high school, it was through these trials that I discovered my untapped potential and creative passions that now fuel my purpose. Laughter and emotions are woven into the fabric of my being, and those who know me describe me as bubbly, empowering, inspirational, funny, and a devoted feline lover, with my cherished cats, Mimosa and Maxwell, by my side.

Join me on this incredible journey of self-expression, growth, and empowerment. Together, let us celebrate the beauty of imperfections, unleash the power of creativity, and embark on a path towards our happiest and most authentic selves. I am thrilled to share my art, experiences, and zest for life with you.
