I am at work on a book of poetry, Echoes and Anthems. I hold a MFA in fine art and a BA in both Art and English/Creative Writing, and have spent my professional life as a fine artist, graphic/web designer, and new media writer. I am a participant in Gateless Writing Retreats, Northwest Writers’ Weekends, Port Townsend Writers’ Conferences, and Olympia Poetry Network Open Mics.

I like to explore the possibilities of art, the elasticity of language, the consciousness of self, and the observation and celebration of the wild. I live in the Pacific Northwest with my musician husband, a Maine Coon cat, and twenty bookshelves.
