creative entrepreneur
mural artist
mental health advocate

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

I'm Arastasia,
aka artsy airy

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

If you know me in real life, or you even found me on the internet, it would probably shock you to know that I wasn't always the super passionate & hopeful artist that I am today. In fact, long before I discovered my love for photography and painting, I was an almost high school drop-out lacking confidence, purpose, and hope for a happy life. Once I found creative passions, a future didn't seem so impossible, and joy was quite literally at my fingertips.

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.
