ARTIST STATEMENT

  • I write and perform children’s poems to learn more about myself and the world around me.  If I stop doing this, I cease to exist. It is my mission to have the world realize the simile and metaphoric wonders that lie within them.


    “Believe 
    that you have it,
    and you have it.”

    – Latin Proverb
