I write poetry and create art.
I am a survivor of child and adult sexual abuse, so that theme often finds its way into my work.
Over the years, I’ve been using art therapy to recover from the effects of extreme abuse. I have taken up drawing and painting. I also love taking photographs, capturing many small beauties.
I began writing short stories at the age of ten. When I was sixteen, a friend introduced me to poetry, which became my dominant form of writing.
I am currently working on an independently-published chapbook. I am an active member of The Writing Bridge, an online community of writers that has enabled me to refine and develop my poetry.
I live on the West coast with my family, alongside the wild Pacific Ocean, where I love to ride my robin’s-egg-blue bicycle, affectionately named “Daisy”, and have adventures in my kayak, “Lily.”
