My work is collected both locally and internationally. I've been educating art students in New England since the Millennium.
I write fiction, short stories, and poetry. Lately, it's mostly haiku inspired by what I dream about at night.
I inform, inspire and influence in support of my community, with a special soft spot for the arts.
