From childhood I have been fascinated with language and the arts. As a poet, I invite potential readers to enter odd dreams, walk into paintings, and eavesdrop on music and fictional characters with me. My poems often start in familiar landscapes— the ocean, a vegetable garden, an art gallery, a popular TV series— but take off into mindscapes and artscapes of the imagination. I want to share with the reader novel ways of looking at life and its imponderable possibilities.
