Here I am speaking at PechaKucha Night Bridgeport, CT, a visual story telling experience that celebrates humanity. The event combined my passions for art & writing = words & pictures, 20 images in 20 seconds, on theme with a fast-paced true story about Reinvention and Discovery. My story was “Creativity is the Mother of Reinvention.” You can view and listen to it on the global website here.
I write non-fiction essays, have stories and poems in anthologies, and am delighted to be a contributing author in the new book Animals: Personal Tales of Encounters with Spirit Animals published by Sacred Stories Publishing. My story is on page 133, “Overcoming Fear With Help From the Whales.”

All cultures have told stories and storytelling dates back 30,000 years. You’ll see and hear me share my full-of-life stories at the We Rise Storytelling Collective and elsewhere.
“You prove to us that art is everywhere and life is about continuously retooling and reinvention.”

My fine art work is about self-expression and learning and mastering new techniques and technologies. I’m currently working with my original clay monotypes.
