Maria Gomez Umana: I have nourished my passion for arts and culture wherever I live while juggling jobs, family life and artwork. Paths have taken me to live in Colombia, England, Switzerland and now Canada. I have explored different techniques in visual arts and at this stage I am looking for ways to combine them, in search of a unique artistic language. Alicia Borisonik: Alicia Borisonik is from the Argentinean province Buenos Aires and is a teacher, singer, vocalist, arranger, composer and performer. She has performed extensively across Canada and in Argentina.
