Anita Yeh Norrie
Anita Yeh Norrie (MA-Art Therapy) is passionate about creating change and improving lives through the transformative power of creating art. A life-long believer in the therapeutic and cathartic power of art, she built her career around developing programs and relationships that encourage expression, and self-realization through creativity.
While an art and design business owner, she was the vehicle of expression for her client’s vision. As an art therapist, she has created therapeutic art programs for kids, mental health programs and nonprofits; launched and operated an open art studio for a community arts center; and led hundreds of people to live a better life through their own discovery of creativity and artistic self-expression.
Anita’s current work of art is Art Power!, the nonprofit she founded in 2017 where she and her team are working to change the lives of underserved kids in Cozumel, Mexico, through their therapeutic choice-based art studio.
When not in the art studio, you can usually find Anita contemplating her next project while exploring tasty food stands and out-of-the-way eateries, wherever she may be.
