I have always been a writer with a vivid imagination and a skill for portraying emotion in my work. In college I took an art class in printmaking and lost my heart. I haven't stopped writing but I do take my skills as a writer and apply them to my art. Emotion is the core of who we are as people and I try to create work (art and poetry) that taps into my heart and soul, work that expresses something intensely real and intimate. True art is more than just a pretty picture, it says something about who you are, where you've been, and what you feel.
