Australian creative with a passion and inspiration for designing and creating one of a kind unique jewellery, home & giftware's. Art & craft classes.

Hi I'm Leisa Antonio Hearps the creator behind Healing India Creative Arts. My small Perth AUSTRALIA based biz offers a range of handcrafted bespoke jewellery pieces and decorative or functional home décor inspired by Indian & Bohemian influences. I enjoy the challenge to apply sustainable principles across my work and thrive on reducing my eco-footprint by sourcing recycled materials, combining these with new & re-purposed materials to create beautiful textile, glass, jewellery, home & gift wares.
If you love supporting and buying from a local small business and are seeking handmade artisan unique one of a kind designs that have been made with lots of love and care, plus made with sustainable principles in mind, check out my "GIFT STORE" page.

EVENTS & WORKSHOPS
I love creating but I also really love sharing creativity by offering a range of multi-disciplinary creative art workshops in person in our community and also to reach other communities by offering online events via ZOOM.
The creative workshops offered are ever-evolving based on the materials which I come across & explore the theme of "turning lost materials into found designs".
Workshop dates, times & all details are available by downloading my current program on the "CREATIVE ART WORKSHOPS" page or by following my Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/HealingIndia/​
Each workshop is a wonderfully creative shared learning experience for all; throughout workshops, we share & learn new repurposing techniques from each other & see our individual creations evolve, celebrating that we are each unique creative artists at heart.
Nature play, sustainable materials and Indian inspired cultural creative workshops for festivals & events are offered by request.

MY CREATIVE & EDUCATIONAL JOURNEY As far back as I can recall, I have been creating by imagining what things can become, turning the lost into something new, foraging & using whatever comes my way to create... always having joy for remaking & for working alongside people.
In 2000 I studied a Bachelor of Social Sciences & began working in the Youth & Community Services sector in Perth, WA developing & facilitating creative & educational workshops & programs with a focus upon self care, creativity, life-skills & community. In 2006, I commenced learning the glass fusing, slumping, kiln fired art-form under the wing of an artist & I am constantly continuing to learn, develop & explore contemporary & traditional forms of creative arts including attending Dressmaking, Fashion and Sustainability & Mixed media workshops.
I continue to combine my work across the private & community based sector in Perth developing & facilitating educational life skills & creative workshops & programs with an emphasis on social responsibility & "slowing down fast fashion by re-purposing clothing & fashion designers textile & fibre waste".
I have been blessed to be part of my Local Community Arts Exhibitions over 3 years; in 2014 I was awarded The Cockburn Community & Cultural Council Inc. 2014 Public Vote Award and a Merit Certificate for my Glass entry; In 2015 I was awarded a First Prize Award for my glass jewellery entry In 2021 I was awarded 4 Merit Certificates for my basketry and Fused glass Jewellery entries.
MY GLASS WORK DESIGNS Using the fusing, slumping and kiln fired warm glass art-form, I'm inspired by being able to reform & recreate fractured, scrap & cut glass into functional jewellery & into small to medium functional & decorative pieces including bowls, clocks, incense holders, coasters, platters, home & gift wares.
