An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.
I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and others I’ve only recently been introduced to.
The person I’d like to introduce is the artist Millefiore Clarkes.
Millefiore Clarkes is a filmmaker and documentarian from Prince Edward Island, Canada. Her passion is to capture on film, the moments in which humans reveal themselves and their essential interconnectivity.
