Arlene Malinowski - Solo Artist, Writer, Instructor

I believe that all of us have a story.
Our stories connect us to who we are
where we come from and who we can become.
Most importantly, I believe our stories connect us with each other.
In the sacred spaces of small theaters, talk over kitchen tables
and between the pages of the written word something happens to us.
We connect, and it is in that connection we discover
that that we all live the same lives in many different ways.
Through my work as a solo artist, writer and teacher it is my hope that we all learn to listen for the story.
