Artists Statement

My inspiration is often drawn from a single word or a fleeting image that is skewed in some way, that jumps out unbidden, often unwanted.

My focus is on the immediacy of poetry, the emotion or reaction consigned to paper, perhaps sometimes simple or less than coherent but indicative of the moment of love or hate or sadness or the mix of conflicting emotions that were the inspiration.

I have emerged from scribbling in the shadows to sharing each new poem and poet I discover with all who have a passing interest. A little of what I write I like and often ‘recipients’ of my poems express genuine appreciation……… what more can be expected in these transient times.
