Welcome

I write poetry and articles on art and ecology, the role of art in society, and the importance of natural systems and biodiversity in the physical and spiritual well-being of individuals, communities, and the planet. Much of my poetry reflects these concerns.

 

My poems and essays appear in literary journals and magazines including Reflections, West Marin Review, Free State Review, Silk Road, Orion, Parabola, Ions, Comstock Review, Eco-Citizen and Jung Journal.

 

My work is also published in On the Commons and Center for Humans and Nature. My poems are anthologized in Know Me Here and Fire and Rain: Eco-Poetry of California; Face to Face: Women Writers on Faith, Mysticism and Awakening; and is included in the Save the Redwoods centennial, The Once and Future Forest (Heyday Books, 2019).
