Simiya maintains a fluid, multidisciplinary, multidimensional creative practice that explores the intersections of art, landscape, design, health, social justice, and spirituality. Simiya’s visual arts practice informs her work as a healer, while the study and practice of a variety of spiritual and healing modalities inform her visual arts practice, equally. Simiya holds several wellness credentials as an Usui Reiki Master, Full Spectrum Doula, Registered Prenatal Yoga Teacher and 200 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher.
