Lori Arbel Arbel

I am an artist, Florida state-certified teacher, and creative life coach guiding young adults through personal journeys of self-discovery and, often, the discovery of their own creative talents. My passion to create innovative mixed-media art and photography – and to help others bring out their own inner artists – has led me to teach in NYC and South Florida schools and community spaces for 18 years.

​Whether finding my own inner-expression in art or helping my students do the same, I try always to offer a positive, energetic perspective.

I’ve been pursuing my own artistic muse since early-childhood.  Later in life, I discovered that artistic expression could be a tool to heal. In college, I used art to work through the anger and pain of my Mom’s death. Later on, after the difficult birth of my daughter, I used art to sort through the emotional challenges and creative shutdown that followed. It was then that I was affected most profoundly by its power to heal. And it was then that I started teaching others how art could be used for healing in stressful situations. And how it can actually promote inner happiness and well-being.
