    Through my Poetic Art Micrography (literally, "tiny writing") I use the written word to evoke textures and forms found in nature. Look closely and you will see these pieces are given substance and life not by lines or brush-strokes but by words. Poems, political writings, musings — all form various elements of each piece. I use techniques that include watercolor, India ink painting, etching, and pen-and-ink micrography.

    Along with micrography on paper I etch poems directly into glass and mirrors -- using a dental drill -- to throw shadows onto a background image. The shadows change and shift focus as the light changes and moves.The layers create reflections and shadows that give a piece depth and texture, and encourage the viewer to explore the sensation of words floating in air.
