On July 6, 2010, multi-talented, local artist and longtime resident (from the age of 10) Santa Cruzian, Noga Vilozny, aka Noga Love Bites, spoke with Artists on Art host, Nada Miljkovic.

The two talked about Noga’s life’s work and art practice that involves singing, dancing, acting, life-coaching, and teaching.  All of these forms of artistic expression which can be related to in terms of elevating vibrations.

Noga is also well known about town as Noga Love Bites.  She has been sending emails to people signed up through her website NogaLovesMe.  People are very happy to receive these surprises that can be affirmations, pictures, movies, all kinds of media with content that help make the day a little better.

Noga began acting with her friend and filmmaker Bella Shing (creator of  Sweeter Media) a Los Angeles transplant who now calls Santa Cruz home. Shing and Vilozny became friends after Vilozny attended a “Manifesting Your Beloved” seminar. The two began collaborating artistically last August when they created two commercials that have been submitted to Cannes.  They can be viewed at Noga’s website in the tab Photos.

The two also worked on a movie called Noga & the Love Seminar. Vilozny wrote the screenplay with director Bella Shing,  Santa Cruz resident Penny Dufour plays the supporting role.

The story is about a young woman, Noga, who had some traumatic love experiences. Her friend, Melissa, drags Noga to a seminar about love. The film follows Noga’s experiences in the seminar as she discovers whether it will help erase her marred past and bring her the love she desires.

Vilozny’s singing experience is put to use in the film, as she lends her vocals to several songs throughout the story. Local salsa band Flor De Caña performed all of the music for the short.
