About Me

Bora Mici is a visual artist who enjoys working in oils, colored pencil and graphite. She has been painting and drawing for over twenty years. She often paints from photographs and believes that establishing scale and composition are the two most important aspects of a successful work of art. Building value adds a third dimension to the work. She leaves the interpretation of time to the eye of the beholder.

She is also a translator (in training), an editor and a writer. She is currently a Romance Languages student at the University of Maryland in College Park, where she is studying French and Italian. She has worked as a writer for Patch.com, GoodSpeaks.org and Planetizen.com. She has also worked as a translator for the Global Grid and Watching America. Recently, she co-translated Noam Chomsky's book "Who Rules the World" from English into Albanian.

Bora Mici maintains her own blog Artists Speak, which is a contemporary archive on the perspectives of artists on the state of art after the conceptual turn in the middle of the 20th century.

Recently, she has begun adding contemporary and older, but still relevant, translations to this archive.

She works and lives in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
