Artist, Author, Health Advocate and Entrepreneur Melissa Leslie Q is internationally known for her fine art reflecting musical inspirations and deeply symbolic works depicting spiritual thought processes, experiences and revelations.

In this episode, we talk about raising children as an artist (the inspirations behind her latest project #KumustaBaby) and how her faith plays a vital role in knowing who you are and how loved you are. Lastly, despite how you may feel about what you put out into the world, that your work can make a positive, healing experience in someone else's life.
