About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Artist-Poet
Location Rabun County, Georgia, United States
Introduction I live in a secluded cove in the Blue Ridge Mountains of NE Georgia, along Warwoman Creek - about a 9 mile hike West from the Chattooga River. To the north of my studio, the Blue Ridge Mountains rise in deep cerulean blues. I live here because these mountains sustain me and my art - light, dark, the seasons, the time of deep past, deep present and deep future, all mix here in alchemal mists that alternately reveal and hide and transform these steep slopes, shaded coves, bright rivers, and deep forests -just as they do my life and work.
