I’m a director, artist, and strategist with a colorful background in assisting women-identified creators in manifesting their work. I’m dedicated to supporting radical queer/women-led projects that leads culture into a more inclusive future. In addition to my professional background, I am also an intuitive reiki healer with a healing practice derived from Traditional Chinese Medicine.
LOLITA BANDITA is a creative studio rooted in a holistic approach to manifesting creative projects. In a culture that prioritizes productivity, I believe in prioritizing health and wellness.
As a former 9-5’er I can relate to how work-related stress and office energy can negatively affect the physical body, mind, and spirit. People aren’t designed to work like batteries until they burn out. I strive to achieve a balance of all three by offering reiki and intuitive acupressure alongside creative services.
Summon me at CONTACT@LOLITABANDITA.CO
I also have a fun newsletter about magic + healing called Alchemy Lessons.
