First there is the outside-learning to see

Then there is the inside….

Growing up in a city which had many voices, I found that listening to the stories that people told through their body movements and facial expressions became my way of learning about the world, about my fellow humans and the way they live. From an early age, listening became a visual experience. I wanted my art to physicalize the stories I hear, to express the nuances my subjects lives and the way their personal stories represent all people.
