I am creative by nature. Inspired by elements of transcendentalism, zen, and native studies my work embodies the simplicity and power of the natural environment. Words are my revelry. Poetry, short creative bits, and scathing prose amuse me. I am also proficient at writing informative more journalistic pieces with light research when the subject matter is of interest. I also love to write stories for children. As for painting, watercolor is my medium and my work is light, abstract, and simple.
