Hi, I'm Láyla, the autistic artist on a mission to change the way we think about trauma and healing.

A survivor of complex trauma, I now have Master's Degree in Post-Traumatic Growth. I am the founder of CustomWeddingDesings.com and a prolific artist/author/speaker. I have been featured by Authority Magazine and Thrive Global as an expert on happiness and resilience.

Whether I'm painting, writing, or speaking, I create new myths and symbolic art to help others find resilience. Along the way, I share my journey of triumph over complex PTSD and how I became "Too Happy to Handle."

LAYLA HEALS.

Láyla transforms herself through art. Her current series, Art Alchemy, expresses her own process as she integrates her new autistic identity, unmasks, and reaches for new levels of authenticity in her art.

Since an original painting is not accessible to everyone, she also makes her work available in the form of wearable art.
