Artist Statement:

The human experience is soft and wild, loving and angry, gentle and violent, holy and tragic.  I tap into my soul to express what I see and experience in such a way that a stranger or my best friend feels me.  Some days I describe being in love, angst or sexual desire.  Other days I identify a feeling, reclaim space and personal power or plainly speak up on issues that make others squeamish.  At this stage in my poetic journey, I am resolved to speak up and speak out on current events, social injustices, and authentic emotion and to speak truth to power.
