My poetry and artwork really began up in Eastport, Maine, about eight years ago. I suppose I always had the talent but not the time to pursue it. I was surrounded by artists, poets, and professors, and as I began, they supported me in my artistic ventures. I sold some of my work, but creating it was really what kept me sane and helped overcome my loneliness.
I am inspired by what is around me. Like my poetry, my heart and soul are in everything I create. I always hope it pleases the people who really read and see my efforts. I love to create real and unreal pieces by using my imagination.
The mediums I use for my artwork are pencil for the control, acrylics for the bold color effect, and oil pastels because of the pure freedom of expression.
Through my poetry and art, I hope to achieve acceptance of who I am and just maybe inspire others to try their hands as an extension of who they are.
