Poet, Spoken Word Artist
Mt. City, GA
I am a writer and visual artist. I live in the North Georgia Mountains of the US, drawing my images and poems from my connection to the land here. I believe that image and word are just two natural dialects for the same thing - bearing witness to the Creation, to the visible and the invisible in it. I believe that if we can restore our understanding of the land, we might save ourselves too in these perilous times.
I hope to touch others in some positive way through my poetry. My poetry book, Untying the Knot (Aldrich Press, 2014) tells the story of the end of a long marriage and the healing. Poet Tom Lux says it's written with "grace, humor and self-awareness and without a dollop of self-pity," and Poet William Wright says the book "possesses the potential to teach us ways to navigate and ultimately transcend the difficulties of divorce and the feelings of loss and grief such division engenders." To support poets and writers, I host a critique group in Atlanta and a Writers' Night Out in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
