Improving mental wellness one dot at a time.

I've been painting and creating since I was a wee little one. If I had my Crayola 64 pack, a Care Bears coloring book, and The Miami Sound Machine blaring on my cassette player, it was a damn good day. In college, I took an intro to art class which showed us a variety of techniques over the course of the semester. That's where I was introduced to pointillism. I guess I just loved the idea of all these dots coming together to create a unified image. And as someone who is obsessed with colors and also has Grapheme–color synesthesia (a neurological  phenomenon characterized by enduring and consistent involuntary associations between letter/digits and colors), getting to use all these amazing colors in my dot work made me so happy (still does!) 

​Mental health and mental wellness is something that I'm very passionate about. Throughout my life, I've struggled with anxiety and depression. Recently, I went through some difficult times. And in my time of need, I found art again. I found that it helped me focus and my mind didn't overthink or overanalyze as much. "Dotting" has become its own form of mediation for me now. More importantly, with each dot I paint, it's become a reminder that each one of us is essential and we are all part of a bigger, beautiful picture. Keep Going.

Frequently asked questions
How long does it take you to paint a piece?

It depends! The size of the object I'm painting can be a factor, but it's mainly the amount of dots, as well as how intricate the design is. There are some pieces that have taken me 2 hours to complete, and others that have taken 10+ hours! Basically, the more dots, the longer it takes! 

What kind of paint do you use?

I currently use acrylic paint for my art!

What do you use to create dots?

I use a variety of objects, including silicone brushes, mechanical pencils (great for those super tiny dots!), and nail art styluses. But I am really fond of using The Dotting Center's dotting tools.
