Creativity has become a moving force in my life. As you will see on this website, creativity takes on many forms of expression. I’m a published author, leader of writing groups, Spiritual Guide, collage artist, designer of block prints and tea towels, and whatever else calls to me or challenges me. I have written poetry all my life and now have two published collections.

It has been a deep joy to share my poems with others, to have others identify with a poem and discover that they are not alone. I was trained in the Amherst Writers and Artists method of leading writing groups and have been doing so for eleven years. Recently, I’ve been using my book Coming to the Edge with writing groups at senior colleges. Writing together creates an air of inspiration in the room and people find themselves writing meaningful stories, poems, and memories that surprise even them. Writing together also brings with it a special bond among students. I’m hoping, in the future, to lead writing groups in person again.
