I pursue and enjoy a wide range of interests. Current creative activity includes writing fiction and poetry, and production of visual art in several media. Most of the work here began as poetry, though my work with images has begun to take on a life of its own. My poetry ranges from formal patterns, especially sonnets, verse employing Sapphic stanzas, haiku and tanka. My work is heavily inspired by my friendships, rural places, earth-based spirituality, Western myth, and also the Western "monster" tradition, including vampires and ghosts of various forms. I'm working on a long collection of vampire poems, a second collection of sonnets that are portraits of people, and a number of poems and images in various formats based in Ireland, and more recently also in Scotland. Most of the poetry that appear here is presented in the comments on pictures, though some of the pieces are inscribed on and in images. Most recently I've focused on figure studies and portraits, though I also create photo manipulations that work from figures and landscapes. Generally speaking, NONE of the work offered here is stock, and every element of work placed here is photographed or otherwise created by me, unless otherwise noted. If you have an interest in using one of my images, write, and I will consider requests on a case by case basis.
