Looking Forward

August has been a busy but quiet month of working with other artists on their websites, with poets and writers with their books, and finishing the edits on my first book consisting of poetry alone (no art other than the cover)—but September looks to be even busier.

Both the poetry book, Letters to the Deceased and Other Missives, and the book of art and poetry, The House of Cards: The Whole Deck will have their official release on Sunday, September 13, from 2-4 both on Zoom and at Tortuga Gallery.
