Launched in 2016 by artist // designer // healer Nalani Hernandez-Melo, Caramelo Manifestations is an art + design + transformative studio based in Palm Springs, CA created to share magic through the visual and healing arts. 



Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Nalani's upbringing was immersed in the arts, fairy tales and magic and rooted in her Mexican heritage. Following in the steps of her Ancestor Yerberas, Nalani began her formal studies as a Curandera (Mexican Medicine Woman) and Intuitive Energy Healer back early in 2013. She earned her BFA in Printmaking/Film from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2012, and since 2013 has cultivated a career in graphic design, digital + social media content production and event curation; collaborating with clients to bring their visual branding needs to life. While honoring her family's lineage of medicine women and combining her passion for design, fine art and ultimately her desire to be of service to others, Nalani created Caramelo Manifestations as a means to bring more creativity and healing to her community.

Nalani currently resides in Palm Springs, CA with her husband and daughter.
