About your facilitator
Nicole Combeau (she/her) is a photographer, trauma-informed expressive art educator, and paper artist living and working in Miami, Florida. As a child of Colombian immigrant parents living in the United States, Nicole struggled to find her voice and identity as a young girl. Being introduced to art as a way of expressing her internal world cultivated and affirmed her voice and life experiences. Nicole continues to use the expressive arts as a pathway to living mindfully, embodied, and as a tool for healing. Her artistic practice goes hand-in-hand with her social practice as an educator. She believes in cultivating a culture of care by bringing artistic expression to classrooms and other communal spaces. Nicole is currently a resident teaching artist in South Florida with ProjectArt, Arts for Learning, and the Healing and Justice Center.
