Hello!

I’m Aleta Jacobson.

I’m a collage, acrylic, watercolor, and mixed media artist from Southern California. I’ve been creating art since I was a child and I believe nothing heals the soul quite like artistic expression.

In the last 20 years, I’ve learned how to develop my artistic voice and have built a thriving creative business. I’d love to help you explore your creativity and build your business through workshops and creative coaching.
