Author's Bio

I am a poet, mixed media artist, photographer and creativity coach.
I give readings, classes and workshops. All my work is based on the belief that creativity is an innate human quality, and that creativity is a healing force for individuals and communities. I currently work part time leading Recovery Writing and Expressive Arts groups with adults in day treatment for addiction. I have given workshops at libraries, retreat centers, prisons, schools, retirement communities and at my home base, Spirit Wind Studio in Duanesburg, NY.
