How the book and documentary came to be...?

The summer of 2017 a young Belgium private art dealer said “Loren is time for your second book! “ Then a month later a Young European filmmaker-artist approached Loren to create another book and a documentary about her art, poetry, life and founder of Art for Healing NYC Int'l org Then a Paris film graduate passed through NYC and did the short video (on the T.V. interview section here) on her way home to Peru. A mysterious serendipity of events that lead to this documentary and book project. All the above happened within 3 months! Meant to be! Wasn’t Loren’s idea, but now, the above artists are gone and we are moving forward to finish the book and documentary. Loren goes with the flow of how life directs her!

Follow Your Dream…

 A Tiny Voice  is a 30 minute documentary (1997) by Loren Ellis, about an artist - photographer’s art and Loren’s  interview of Paula at 100 years old. Also Loren interviews curators at NYC museums where Paula’s photographs are in the collections. Paula and Loren discuss “If you don’t believe in yourself, no one will”. Whatever ‘tiny voice’ one has in the art world, or in any profession, one has a voice. A dream come true must start with one’s belief in one’s vision.

“When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”

 TAO Te Ching - Lao Tzu

 “You see things as they are and you say why?

“But I dream things that never were and I say why not”

- George Bernard Shaw
