Therapeutic Artistry and Acts of Defiance
Poetics. Illustrations. Ceramics. Sex. Healing.
We wish to honor the Indigenous people of what is now known as the state of Florida, upon whose land we are living, working, and healing. We honor the Pensacola, Apalachee, Guale, Timucua, Potano, Ocale, Tocobaga, Mayaimi, Ais, Calusa, Jeaga, Tequesta and Matecumbe tribes. We further honor the lost indigenous people of the Jaega, the Seminole, and the Taino tribes of Singer Island, where we operate this program, and who rightfully belonged here unmolested.

Bumpy Lime Ceramics
Trauma-informed artistry preserved in clay.
Our custom line of trauma-informed ceramics is created using our art therapy process. Each piece is created by making room for every emotion and honoring each to the fullest. Here, we celebrate joys locked into the clay. Here, we honor our sadness, making room for healthy boundaries. Here, we vitrify the spoilation of spirit. Every single piece of pottery represents authentic, genuine healing and holds space for you to join us where love meets art.
Pea Flower Tea Prints
Sensory-based artistry blending color and neurodivergency
Pea Flower Tomioka perceives color differently from a neurotypical brain due to a condition called synesthesia. Their paintings represent the shifting way that life and movement bloom over the faces of everyone they see. Feel the beauty of this hidden world of color for yourself by ordering your own portraits or shopping our collection of fine art watercolor prints.

Pea is building an art therapy program for survivors of sexual violence to reclaim their power after abuse. The program's cornerstones, which can be explored on this site, include poetry, illustration, and ceramics. All too often, we find that the traditional therapy models are exclusionary and marginalized groups frequently fall through the systemic cracks in our medical systems. Pea aims to provide a program that is designed to address the systemic failures of these systems through advocacy, activism, artistry, and trauma-informed therapeutic healing. This means our program will be rooted in upholding all inclusive forms of healthy sexuality. You can learn more about our therapeutic approach and our commitment to being trauma-informed here.
This program is under construction, and Pea is working towards earning multiple degrees to ensure that the program has a solid foundation in positive psychology, authentic artistry, and trauma recovery. Pea plans to launch the program in full after she receives her certification as a sex counselor and educator from the American Society for Sexual Educators, Counselors, and Therapists.

Pea is always in a stage of transformation and believes when we think we've finally become who we are supposed to be, then the journey is at an end. She holds equivalency to a Masters in Graphic Illustration from private tutoring and is working towards an interdisciplinary Masters in Psychology and Creative Writing as a Phi Theta Cappa honors student. A published poet, a ceramicist, and a professional knitter for over ten years, Pea is passionate about advocacy, an active member of the LGBTQ+ family, and is building an art therapy program for adult survivors of sexual violence to reclaim their power. Pea believes the current models for sexual health are exclusionary to a wide range of the LGBTQ+ family and intends to change the conversation about healthy sexuality through poetry and erotica.
To facilitate this goal, she launched Lavender Lime Literary (www.lavenderlimeliterary.com) to provide an inclusive, trauma-informed space for poets and artists to challenge westernized models of sexual health together.
She lives on a small island off of the east coast of Florida with her husband, her son, and their menagerie of birds, cats, reptiles, and spiders. She can most often be found feeding wild doves in her front yard and arguing with iguanas about whose pepper plants are whose.
