Author's Bio

Latest in my Interactiv’ Book series is #14, Lyons Creating Champions: A Blueprint for recovery and Risk-Mitigation, written for Dreaming the Future by Kenny Ausubel. I Graduated from Gaia U in 2012 with my Masters of Science degree in Integrative EcoSocial Design and have now opened my new ArtBox Studio to create new works: Papermaking, Artist books, Publishing, Exhibitions, Salons, Poetry and Think-Tanks. My latest publications are: Politically Correct? a collaborative book published May 2015 by Luc Fierens in Belgium for his Extra PostFlux Press for Visual Poetry books, and my poem, "Towards" appearing in the book Systemic Crises of Global Climate Change, published in July 2015 by Routlege, Informa UK Limited. My last reading was in the Ozarks OACC Congress Sept 2014. In Venice, Italy 2008 I did 42 interviews of the waters filled with plastic and was told by Water to make a Water complimentary Currency, which am planning by representing endangered natural systems’ vital needs. And in Venice while in a three month residency, Rita degli Esposti's Edizioninedite published four chapbooks with my poetry and translations from Italian to English, including: What Opens Stays Forever, Clunk!, Poems for Clunk!, ConfluEssence, and Il Vuoto il Vento La Pioggia. As Co-Chair of The Sustainable Futures Commission, Town of Lyons CO I'm transforming consciousness as part of my SuperSkyWoman ethic. My new Artbox Studio is officially open and booking retreats for writers. I am working on an experimental Memoir that incorporates 1996 writing done at the Djerassi Foundation, with 1988 biographical vignettes from my SKIN book log featuring Ray Johnson, Linda Montano, Tehching Hsieh, Simone Forti, Betsy Damon, Arlene Schloss, Alison Knowles, Barbara T Smith, Sandra Semchuk, Emily Harvey, Claude Maillard, Barbara Roux, and others.
