Our World Interviews–Minnie Valero

Peregrino for site

Minnie Valero, an artist who thinks, lives and creates in three languages-a beautiful way to live and create!

Now, in my third life, I live and paint in France and California, about six months a year in each place. My heart brakes a little every time I say goodbye, and sings with joy at every re-encounter. Ahora, en mi tercera vida, vivo y pinto en Francia y California, aproximadamente seis meses al año en cada lugar. Mi corazón se quiebra un poco cada vez que digo adios, y canta de alegria con cada re-encuentro. Maintenant, dans ma troisième vie, j’habite et peint en France et en Californie,  six mois environs dans chaque endroit. Mon coeur se brise un peu chaque fois que je dis au-revoir, et chante de joie à chaque rencontre.
“To leave is to die a little…but to stay… what is it to stay?” “Partir es morir un poco…pero quedarse…qué es quedarse? “Partir est mourir un peu…mais rester…c’est quoi rester?”

From My Three Lives, in Argentina, USA and France,
