“I literally thrive on the process of creating; the most important thing for me since day one has always been the journey itself for it is during the journey the gates of my soul are unlocked and only the purest of truths flood out. Creativity is a euphoric love affair; it is a self-imposed vow, a dedication, a stampede to all that is my vital core and a connection then to that core. It means the quest to know and understand myself in the deepest way possible, a way of which I found at a really early age I can communicate best with by using a language that is all my own. I empty entirely out to share and communicate with the world what I need to, I go to a place where I meet myself and I dance that eternal dance!” Micci Cohan / 2017
