My philosophy is to allow the whole person’s potential to be expressed within a creative process and to transform this into a performance (‘per-formare’), touching both heights and depths. For me, it is about giving space for the unloved, unrecognized, unincluded aspects of the personality, and creating for them a place of joy and respectful acceptance. This work is for all humankind.
