About the Poetry Series
I started reading poetry in high school and college and that's when I started "fooling" around with it. But I wasn't interested in the formal study of poetry; I was just trying to find ways to integrate the language of ideas with my visual ideas to express a thought or feeling in a succinct way.
In 2012 I started compiling all the poems I’d stuffed in a drawer and then chose a few to “paint.” From that process in 2013 I decided to self-publish “Poetry InsideWords” using digital illustrations from my own photography that have been manipulated with multiple filters in Photoshop.
Since the book’s publication I have done readings from the book at the local Sonoma Bookstore and in library readings. Below is a pdf of the book “Poetry InsideWords” - Enjoy!
