Art Therapist

Bachelor Visual Arts(Hons), MA Creative Arts Therapy (Clinical), Cert. Dance Movement Therapy

Leticia (she/they) (Ngāti Raukawa, Pākehā) is an artist and registered creative arts therapist from Te Whanganui-a-Tara. Since 2016, she has been supporting people in various spaces to explore hauora through the arts.

Leticia started as a volunteer in the North Shore art group in 2021 and was inspired by the creativity and mana-enhancing community of Māpura. They came on board as an arts therapist/arts facilitator in 2022 after graduating from an MA in Creative Arts Therapy (Clinical).

During their BVA(Hons) Leticia’s responsive, performance-based works played off the mystery, humour and stories of artefacts and the everyday. Since then, her arts-practice has developed into a multidisciplinary mish-mash. Guided by the creative presence in daily life and concerned with the act of poiesis. Recent works draw on her living experience as a neurodivergent person exploring themes of self/ves, identity and voice.
