Bertha Liduvina lives in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca. An artist and creator throughout her life but newly discovered how her work has helped her through various periods of change and growth in her life. Now in her 60’s, she has found new inspiration and meaning to her work.
We arrived in Puerto Escondido and had just settled into our Airbnb ready to begin working on our next episode. Our host Betty knocked on our door unexpectedly and invited us to join her on her Palapa for some mezcal. Since we were always in the mood to drink mezcal and interact with new people we were pleasantly surprised to find she herself is a creator in poetry and music. While Betty never quite pursued art as a career, it has always been a part of her life, and now in her early 60’s she has processed its various stages and meanings and growth. We shared so many wonderful conversations with her about life and art that by the end of our time in Puerto Escondido we couldn’t find a reason not to invite her to be a part of our series. We hope Betty’s episode will inspire those to continue to create no matter what stage of life you’re in, and to help those understand the true importance of creating art. Enjoy episode 13.
