Artist Statement

I began writing poetry as a combat soldier in Vietnam and a few years later combined the poems with my photographs.

Through the '80's and '90's I traveled the East Coast to art and craft shows selling my poetry/photo wood plaques and wood furniture. I published Poems from the Mountain and More Poems from the Mountains in 1980 and 1990, respectively. In 2010 Poetry Visions was published. My poetry has been published in the Cold Mountain Review, Treasured Poems of America and Shreve Memorial Library, Poems of the Day.

I think of my poems as "street poetry," simple, close to the soul, and reflective of the spirituality and rocky rolls of this life.

Studio is open by appointment during the remainder of the year.
