Incorporating Art, Mindfulness and Creativity into Healing

Meet Jacqueline Drake TALC

artist / art therapist / Life Coach 

A beacon of transformation and holistic healing. As the Director of Creative & Immersive Therapies at The Drake Center, she merges her diverse expertise to craft innovative programs focused on mindfulness, creativity, and healing. Her nursing background and two decades of mixed media artistry converge, providing a unique foundation for her practice.

Jacqueline's art is a luminous reflection of her essence, igniting introspection and healing in those who encounter it. She empowers individuals through her striking canvases, art-inspired products, workshops, and private healing sessions.

In 2020, she boldly shuttered her physical gallery to embark on a profound journey of personal wellness, venturing into the realms of mind, body, and creative spirit.

In response to evolving times, Jacqueline created a Metaverse gallery, infusing her mixed media paintings with life in the digital realm. This immersive space showcases acrylic, Encaustic, resin, VR, and AR art, fostering calm and meditation.

In 2021, Jacqueline and her husband, Dr. Cassius Drake, addressed the global mental health crisis by founding The Drake Center For Transformative Healing, a space that integrates diverse modalities to heal the mind, body, and creative spirit.

Jacqueline's commitment continues as she directs creative and immersive therapies at the center, collaborating with her husband. Her artistry extends to her home studio, where she crafts commissioned pieces.

Welcome to Jacqueline's journey of Mind, Body, and Creative Spirit. Step into the digital version of her art, where healing, inspiration, and creativity converge.

Jacqueline, based in Michigan with her husband and two sons, invites you to explore her world of transformation and well-being.
