  • Dr. Tamara Liz Rivera Hyde




    Honorary Dr. of metaphysics, spiritual counselor, artist & masters in art therapy. Her art inspires hope, joy and healing. Tamara Liz explores metaphysics, the psyche and the pursuit of a better world.


    Born and raised in the Island of Puerto Rico, Tamara graduated from Escuela de Artes Plasticas with a BA in Fine Arts and UPR Humacao with AA in Communications. Tamara achieved recognition in the local art scene, exhibited and sold paintings in prominent art galleries and showed her video art in many concerts.


    Her experiences with her own mental health led her to understand from the inside out the healing power of art. This is why she continued her studies in Georgia at GCSU, graduating with a masters degree in Art Therapy.


    She later moved to New Mexico to continue her art therapy practice and ascension journey. This is where she took courses in curanderia, ayurveda and reiki. In 2021 Tamara passed the 5th and 6th initiation and is integrating with her Higher Self. She moved to El Paso, Texas where she currently resides. She has her gallery/studio in the growing art district of Socorro TX, where she sometimes offers healing arts workshops and actively participates in the art scene.


    About Art



    My artworks speak of my essence, frequency and level of consciousness. They're documenting my inner journey of self-discovery and growth. Strokes guided by intuition, much like automatic painting, as fragments of me are transferred to the canvas. Inspiring others to engage in their own inner journey of self-discovery through the arts.

    October 29th, 2020 at 11am MST I'm so exited to (finally) show up online! Thankfully the masters gave me a little push on a Brazilian Light Energization healing session I had with Lori Huskey Diebold. AND believe me, I been waiting for far too long. Since I had the Business Light Expansion...

    Intuition 101

    Do you follow your intuition?

    Can you recognize your gut feelings, your intuition? We are often fact-checking, rationalizing and over-thinking. Little time is left to tune in to our emotions, to the automatic, impulse driven actions of our spirit; Unless your showering or driving, which has been determined as some the most creative moments in our lives by researchers.
