HI, I’M JEANA!
I am so happy you’re here! A bit about me: I currently reside in sunny St. Petersburg, Florida and I am loving every minute of it. I am happily married, I am an introverted extrovert, and I strive to be a better listener ever single day. I have struggled with mental health since my adolescent years and though it hasn’t been easy, I have learned so much about myself and the stigma behind mental health along my journey. My hope is to be a voice that reminds you that you are not alone. Here you will find a space free of judgement, full of grace, and a whole lot of quirkiness.
BRINGING HERMIITY TO LIFE
You may be wondering, where it all began…and I’m here to clear that up! Hermility was founded in 2020, during the peak of the pandemic. It all began when I started to paint watercolor flowers while going through a period of intense depression and anxiety. I had never used this medium before. While painting with watercolor, it was a challenge for me I never expected, and certainly a mental exercise. No matter how hard I tried to control the final outcome, I couldn’t control every aspect of these pieces. The water flowed in its own way, to create something beautiful and unique. No flower was the same. With this sentiment, in combination with being an advocate for mental health awareness and a woman of faith—I felt a tug on my heart to create a space where women could gather and be reminded of the beauty of our humility. In this case, our her-mility. My ultimate goal is to help women who have struggled and are continuing to struggle with similar experiences, through art, conversations surrounding mental health, community, and faith.
