land acknowledgment

 


We wish to honor the Indigenous people of what is now known as the state of Florida, upon whose land we are living, working, and healing.  We honor the Pensacola, Apalachee, Guale, Timucua, Potano, Ocale, Tocobaga, Mayaimi, Ais, Calusa, Jeaga, Tequesta and Matecumbe tribes.  We further honor the lost indigenous people of the Jaega, the Seminole, and the Taino tribes of Singer Island, where we operate this program, and who rightfully belonged here unmolested.

Pea Flower Tomioka is building an art therapy program for survivors of sexual violence.

I'm Pea, and I'm an artist building an art therapy program for survivors of sexual assault. I'm a queer, neurodivergent disabled artist who has struggled, as many of us have struggled, to find the healing support I needed after systemic abuse. So many neurodivergent folx struggle to bridge the space between our lives and how we perceive the world around us, vs. the neurotypical methods deployed for therapeutic support. My goal is to create an art therapy program that can be used alongside traditional therapy methods to help support those of us who tend to slip through the cracks when it comes to standard models for therapy.

In short? This is a case of Heal Thyself. Both my program and I are a work in progress, and I've set up options for those who might support me as I work to create this program. How do I know if I'm doing it right? Well- I'm the first client! I'm documenting my own healing process to ensure that the spaces where traditional models of therapy or support have failed me and shoring up the gaps. I'm working through heavy concepts and teaching myself to find healthy avenues toward joy, healing, and sustainable support structures. In short, this space exists to help fund the entire process as I work my way through building my program and sharing the beauty of creating with all of you.

The program will have foundations in several areas, both artistic and uplifting:

  • Poetry
  • Ceramics
  • Artworks
  • Trauma Recovery
  • Advocacy
  • Support

 

Here, you'll follow my journey as I continue my formal schooling (Interdisciplinary Bachelor's degree in psychology and creative writing, Certification with the American Association of Sexual Educators, Counselors, and Therapists, and a Masters degree in Poetry). Together, we will improve our pottery skills. We will write poetry and share new concepts, structures and forms. I will share my art with all of you, in an open, transparent forum where we collectively work towards healing. You'll get to learn with me as I expand my home studio to include a ceramics space, and you'll get exclusive access to all of the pieces I create.

What are we creating here? I'm so glad you asked! You can learn more about each of the cornerstones below:

Poetics. Illustrations. Ceramics. Sex. Healing.
