As both a writer and visual artist, I hold a deep regard for the creative process common to all art forms. For over a decade I have taught creative writing in classrooms, summer camps, prisons, at professional conferences, and in shelters for battered women and the homeless. Since earning my Master of Fine Arts in creative writing from UNC-Greensboro, I have studied with local artists, each mentor adding a new dimension to my work. Soon it became clear to me that writing and visual art and creative movement all bloom from the same internal source. I now incorporate writing and other art forms into images and experiences that beg to cross genre and medium. My abstract and figurative paintings use acrylics, inks, and natural objects. Often they are the result of (or the seed of) an original poem.
