I believe in the inherent need of humans to create. Even – or maybe especially – when it is not perfect. I create with my words. I try not to limit myself to one thing, though for the most part I write nonfiction (I really want to write in the creative nonfiction genre, so that’s what I work on). There may be ideas that need to be a poem, a short story, or an essay. It is important to me that I am open to exploring art for art’s sake. This page is a part of that.
Here is my growing collection of “doodles.” I love handlettering! I am not very inventive, or necessarily great at it, but it is fun to me. I enjoy taking words I love and putting them together in a pretty-to-look-at way. I thought this would be a fun way to share some of who I am – my favorite quotes – and at the same time glimpse one way I challenge myself creatively.
