Lorisse Alicia Ortiz-Bentiné is known for never conforming to any one medium. She embodies the passion for true artistry, creating because something deep within says she must. A poet, moving actresses, youth leader, vocalist, graphic designer, and visual artist, there is no containing her, and she will find every outlet to release her art. With her B.A. in Theater Arts, she concentrated on Performance Art which propelled her drive to consistently associate herself with more than one medium as an artist. It is to her delight that you never know what to expect of her. With over 20 years of experience in the arts, performing and visual, she comes to us driven by the need to tell a story with everything she creates. And be you artists or not, she encourages you to share yours.
Lorisse will be slamming at the Poetry 2Life slam to celebrate the release of ebook, Embracing: A Poetic Perspective. Details below.
