My Story

Love for Art & Design

Hello! My name is Raesha Barfuss. I’m an artistic soul from Austin, Texas. I’m married to Marine Corps Veteran Kyle Barfuss, and together we have a beautiful little boy named Brandon. After working ten years in the medical field and the birth of my son; I decided to pursue my passion and love for art & design. Since I was a little girl I have always enjoyed building, creating, and sharing new ideas  On my spare time I actively paint and volunteer at Buda Elementary; teaching and sharing art to young children with special needs.

In 2017 our son Brandon was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder which effects his communication and language development. After receiving his diagnosis my interests & mindset became more focused on finding new methods to help develop Brandon’s communication skills leading me to Art Therapy. Over this period, I gained the knowledge and insights as to how active art-making can enhance the lives of autistic children. Incorporating art into our lives has opened up a whole new world of connecting & communicating in fun creative ways. I’m happy to say that Brandon is doing well, and he continues to work hard every day. We hope to inspire, educate, & spread awareness through creative artistic expression.
