It is through sound and poetry that I have been able to find hope, meaning, and express from my heart what is unexplainable in plain conversation.

Words, and our voices that make out the sounds of these symbols, have the power to transform, invent, renew and build our inner and outer worlds. This belief is at the core of my work as an artist, then also as an aunty, sister, friend, teacher, student, coworker, and stranger, because our “work” is never isolated to what brings monetary currency–our work is embodied in the energetic currencies shared in all of our relations. A single series of words–spoken, read, or heard from another–can alter the course of a day, a year, an entire lifetime and beyond.

As I maneuver through this cocoon phase of using my voice and finding the ways it wants to be used, I am deeply appreciative of your investment in my creations, whether it be my poetry, musings, music, pyrography or illustrations. I put all of my heart and sincerity into everything I am a part of, and I welcome invitations to collaborate in any way.

Let’s co-create!
