M. Yoho Dorsey works in multiple mediums including printmaking, photography and performance. Fascinated by the power of stories and the creation of myth her multidisciplinary practice reflects upon the nature and expectation of narrative as a means to explore ideas. Those ideas explore hidden histories, stories and personal memories through the embodiment of carefully constructed ephemeral arrangements which take into account the peculiar sensitivity of a space given around and within. Dorsey studied at the Sogetsu School of Ikebana in Tokyo, and earned her MFA from the University of South Florida. She practices the of the art of Ikebana, the constant search for a balanced relationship between the sky, the earth and man.
