I have been writing poetry for as long as I have been painting.

Recently I’ve been collaging my images with found text, - cut from poetry catalogues, old gender theory books, and great reads found at the bottom of the $1` book bin.

I hope at some point to assemble it into a collaged sort of novel …. well auto biography… we’ll see - I’ll let the poems tell me

Below is a sample of some of my favorites, all can be viewed on my instagram and purchased through my Etsy shop.
