Author's Bio

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.
