Beatrice Coron experienced life through a series of odd jobs - a shepherdess, a truck driver, a factory worker, a cleaning lady, and a tour guide - before setting out to become an artist in her 40s. Her love of languages and stories led her to become a paper cutter, who sees paper as a sculptor sees stone: "the image is already inside the paper, I just have to remove what is not from 'this' story." In this TED video, Beatrice describes her creative process and the influences that allow her to tap into the essential magic of her imagination.
