"Secrets and fear collide..." Day 20 of #NaPoWriMo #Art and #Poetry

. I was her final prize… She took me with no doubt… Her eyes left a lingering trail… Up one side, down and inside out… In a single moment she saw… every secret, every flaw… In that fatal instant… She had me.. all… . “I won’t tell.” she whispered… “Your…

"You make me Crazy..." Maybe #poetry will save me... #NaPoWriMo

. You think you know me… So you feel you have the right to impose on me… You say you love me… so you worry… . You think you have to help me… What that really means is you want to fix me… You don’t want to hurt me… You are so sorry… . You think you…

Originally posted on People and Chairs:Photo © Kevin Thom One of the great reasons to love improv is its fleeting nature. There’s no record of it. It comes, it goes. We’re left with our memories of it. Our memories. It’s a nice gift we let ourselves have.…

"What a wicked smile I will gain..." Day17 of #NaPoWriMo #Poetry #art #silliness

 . I pressed my hand down to disguise my pain… I covered my eyes to hide my shame… Still the evil thoughts leak out of my brain… How can I control that inner dark flame… Ideas so black So deliciously insane… That once released they will never be tame……

"The Other Side of the Door..." Day 13 of #napowrimo #art and #poetry

. On the other side of the door… Dreams await… Night time comes… I close my eyes… Sleep slips in… The door opens… The world widens… Everything I can not do, I do… Everything I fear, I do not… Gravity becomes malleable, soft, bendable……

"Sleep is a restless zombie..." Day 11 of #napowrimo #art and #poetry

. The many voices in my head… Speak to me in whispers… Cutting away slices… Sawing edges red… Their quiet breaks the silence… A knife upon a fragile thread… For when they settle on me… I know that sleep is dead… . In desperation I will turn… And…

Work
Occupation
Artist... writer... parent... one who struggles through life and tries not to complain to much...
Skills
The ability to be creative with whatever is at hand. To laugh when I want to cry and to keep on walking when my feet hurt.
Employment
  • Ozmorrhiza Arts Studio
    present
    I create improvisational art; drawings, sculptures, paintings, photographs and performance. I write poetry for those who wish to hear my thoughts. I write fiction for those who want to hear my stories. Occasionally I may make sounds that could be considered music, and move my body through space in a dance like way. The rest of the time, I am helping others to solve creative conundrums and placing myself in service to the community.

Introduction
Artist working in improvisational art... photography, drawing, words and more....

..... ask me what I do... and it may change from day to day, but I am always seeking to share what is in my head or heart at any given moment. 

Bragging rights?.... well, I'm still alive......... .......................................................................Oh, and I once jumped off the tallest mountain in Europe with an irate Frenchwoman on my back...

Occupation?.... Yes, I'm definitely occupied! 
I make art... I tell stories... I create a world for my children to inhabit...  I laugh as much as possible. 

I'm involved in many rotating projects... I am working on my first novel... may the PTB have mercy on my literary soul....
