“My heart is in my mind. I think this is why I am an artist.”
― Nayyirah Waheed
My name is Darcy Wade. I am an artist, a daughter, a friend, a lover of nature, an adventurer and a wanderer on my own journey. I was born and raised in the city of Charlotte, North Carolina yet my soul has called the Blue Ridge Mountains home since 2009. In 2013 I received my Bachelor's Degree in Creative Art Therapy with a minor in Studio Art. In 2019 I recieved my Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a certificate in Expressive Arts Therapy and a concentration in Body-Centered Therapy. I received my 200-hour Registered Yoga Instructor certificate in 2016.
Creative expression is my medicine. I enjoy painting, drawing, dancing, singing, drumming, writing and sharing. I believe that creativity is a universal language that all humans are born with. The arts connect and help us better understand ourselves, our community, nature, history, culture, spirituality, emotions and our entire universe. It is when I am creating, whether by myself or with others, that I feel most in touch with what it means to be alive and well.
I currently reside in Asheville, North Carolina where mountain tops, waterfalls, rivers and forests have become my sanctuary. I am most inspired by the wonders of Mother Nature and all the gifts and lessons she provides. I like to spend my days in my studio drawing and painting, or outside hiking and playing in the woods.
