I started BREATHING about seven years ago, in February 2010, when I was going through a very rough patch and intensely felt the need to reconnect. Right then, at the time that I was suffocating, LIFE brought me the Japanese dance form BUTOH and shortly after I started practicing YOGA. I love both forms for the same reason, the same ‘thing’….the BREATH….ANIMALIS..
After all….you don’t need much to find TRUE HAPPINESS (is) (within yourself).
(Painting BREATHE! I made in 2004)
