Ntozake Shange

Working with poets is an amazing experience.  
They take me to places with language and sound
I don't normally travel.  They open mountain tops 
and ancient caves with magical vowels, 
profound insight, and deep emotions (I don't
know how else to explain their genius).
Ntozake Shange discussing her poem "i live in music"
 Even though most of my time with Ntozake Shange
was in the studio, working on art projects,
doing a live show was a dream come true. 
Watching Ntozake Shange perform
 In 2014, I hope to work with more poets
on artist's books and printmaking projects.

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
