Creativity + recycling

It is thrilling to visit museums and exhibitions and witness firsthand inspiring works of art.  It is also thrilling to catch the passion and emotions shared in works of poetry.  Through my art I channel inspiration found in museums art, and nature.  In turn, my poetry shares the inspiration in word and verse that I find throughout life and nature.

 "A Quiet Night in June" , is the first compilation of the poems I have been inspired to write.  The title is inspired by the opening poem, "Reflections on Cherry Blossoms and Pagodas."  That piece recalled the magical world of oriental Japan as seen through the eyes of a college junior visiting there for the very first time.  Plus, I personally crafted watercolor illustrations to accompany the poems in the book.
