Amity's Artist's Statement:
Through my blog I wanted to make the notion of nonverbal communication something that people connect to their everyday lives. I want people to know that it's more than just body language, and that learning more about it can really impact communication as a whole. I wanted the blog to be approachable and understandable to anyone, not just people with a background in communication.
