learned that art can be created by everyone -
regardless of age, race, education."
|"Being a strong woman doesnUt get you thrown out of your culture. I have learned something about what it means to travel as an artist, to make connections with a variety of people (artists and other professions) and solicit a genuine and enriching exchange between us."|
|"I have learned the importance of a journey. That it is the struggle to climb to the top of the pyramid that you will remember and not the souvenirs you bring back home."||"In
Canada everything is progress. Things seems to move forward at an
alarming rate. In Mexico TtimeU is a
continuation from the Aztecs and before to the present. The present is an expression of the past - who we were then - leading up to who we are now."
|"Being place in an entirely new cultural location was an extremely eye-opening experience. It was as though my artistic expression grew ten-fold over the past three weeks in comparison to the past two years."||The pride and attention paid to history impresses me. I have learned how important history can be in expression and how myself might be able to incorporate it - that of my family, my country - in my work."|
|"I learned that I am capable of doing so much more that I have ever given myself credit for."||"The most important thing is not to limit myself to one art form or to one idea."|
|"I can adjust to just about anything. I can be more flexible than I thought and I can accept the fact that something is beyond my control and all I can control is how I react to that."||"If the Mexican people can accept the old, assimilate the new and still retain what is important to their own individuality surely it's not a stretch for me to accept that I can contribute my artistry in what ever form and enrich other people's lives."|
