Hello & Hola
Welcome and Bienvenidos to my online home.
I’m Miriam. A Latina who believes in the power of art to heal and planet care as a lifestyle. It’s a page dedicated to sharing WELLNESS art classes and healthy planet resources and tips with you. I am an award-winning artist, teaching artist, and environmental practitioner (Green Girl) in zero waste reduction. I also am a two-type cancer thriver, currently beating both Triple Negative Breast Cancer and Chondrosarcoma.
I consider myself a Champion of Life – Campeona de la Vida for the healthy choices I make putting wellness first for myself and the planet.
The classes depicted below are the most popular. No previous art experience is necessary because I make art accessible to all. I believe everyone is an artist and creative. My classes are designed to provide you with a non-prescriptive art experience and exploration where anything is possible one stroke at a time.
Why Learn from Miriam?
Miriam has a five out of five-star rating on her Facebook page, but what’s behind those numbers? What makes Miriam’s classes so well liked? Miriam makes anyone who takes her class feel like an artist, respected and seen, regardless of experience; and class features include:
A Safe Place to Create.
She creates a safe container for self-expression and finding the artist inside of you. As a guide she facilitates methods that become your own. Why? Because Miriam’s art life came after a 22-year life in business due to a health issue.
Art Wellness for Life Balance.
She is considered an art-outsider, emerging artist, and teaching artist in the field because she understands that the arts can utilized for balance, thriving beyond surviving, and the release of emotions or loss in some way for body, mind, spirit and planet wellness. She also knows the joy and deep satisfaction that comes from creating.
Let Go and Create.
Miriam understands you, because she herself knows the fear art can bring up, and by encouraging you to “Let Go” she makes it fun and relatable. There are no mistakes in Miriam’s class, only opportunities. I welcome you En Casa to join me for a class.
Here's what others say.

"This class was so much fun, provided by a very knowledgeable facilitator. She really brings out the artist in everyone."
Valerie H, Tampa, FL
I had so much fun learning “I am” an artist. Miriam is an excellent facilitator whose passion for Zentangle and teaching people her craft is obvious as soon as the class begins. I highly recommend trying this for anyone who is looking for something new and wants to find out that you too are an artist.

Thank you. You had a beautiful flow and rhythm to the way you facilitate expressive arts, all of which made me feel extremely 'held' by the experience.
