After quitting her job as a graphic artist, Rogene Manas traveled to Mexico to find inspiration for her paintings. Influenced by the folk art she saw, her paintings began featuring portraits of human bodies with plants or trees in place of a head. Rogene talks with Art Beat about her work and artistic transformation.
