Writing

Writing poetry is an increasingly important part of my practice: it is something that I have done for many years.

In 2014 I published a collection called ephemeral;
in 2022 veiling: grief and delight was published.
Both books are available for purchase.

Included in the ‘poetry’ link  are individual, as-yet unpublished poems.

This long-form narrative poem is a kind of mythology.
