A. Yanina Gomez, Ph.D.
Hi, I am Dr. Yanina! I am the co-founder of Art NXT Level. In 2009, I obtained my Doctorate Degree (Ph.D.) in Educational Psychology. Before founding Art NXT Level, I practiced school psychology for 12 years and taught courses in higher-education institutions in the areas of psychology and counseling. I also worked as a gallerist for 33 Contemporary Gallery in Chicago.
Throughout the years, I have observed how art has the potential to affect the emotions, psychological states and mood of people. Similarly, through one-on-one coaching and numerous conversations with artists, I have witnessed how art making can be used as a tool to ease one’s tensions, release anxieties, as well as, a powerful and influential way to share the artist’s voice with the world.
My insight and understanding of the psycho-emotional issues many artists experience has given me the opportunity to identify practical resources artists may benefit from when dealing with their art careers in a healthier manner. I believe that artists who maintain an optimal wholeness balance (Mind, Body, Soul) will be ahead of the game. I enjoy developing seminars, programs and resources that are relevant to the thriving contemporary artist especially brainstorming with artists about their career development and emotional wellness. Finally, I am a mother of two amazing children.
