About the artist:
This site is a collection of my photography, most often coupled with very short free form poetry. I try to keep the poetry as autobiographical as possible. My hope is that each medium extends the other to produce a deeper level of narrative than words or pictures alone. You can also find my longer works of poetry and short stories.
Photography-wise my favorite thing to do is work within constraints. I love to use my second-hand Canon Powershot SD500, along with my bigger, newer faster cameras. I'm best at looking through my photos and using ones that are "flawed" in some way and turning them into something cool.
I'm an info junkie, a geek girl, a poet. I love the arts and science equally. Straight out of High School I worked professionally as a writer for newspapers and radio. As a single mother, I've worked in health care for the last fifteen years, but now I'm doing the things that I love best full time.
I have loved words my whole life. I remember as a preschooler, asking my great-grandma how to spell cat— "and go slow grandma!" In grade school, I rocked out the spelling bees (a trophy every year, oh yeah!) and was the obsessive geeky high school newspaper editor.
I hated poetry. Wouldn't touch the stuff, tossed my nose up at it like it was roadkill ten days gone. Old stuffy words, old stuffy rhymes, just not my thing, you can keep it, thank you very much. So what changed?
A few years ago, I went back to school. My course load was heavy on math and science and I wanted to balance it with something fun. So on a lark, I signed up for Creative Writing.
"This class emphasizes poetry," said the instructor. I nearly left at the break, but she was so passionate and enthusiastic, I decided to give it a shot. Within a couple months my poetry was published in the The Huron River Review and eventually I took her class three times. I found that poetry comes more naturally to me than any other writing I do, and I love the freedom of verse and the economy of words.
