In the spaces

between things

In the places

other people don't look

She peers ...

A writer of poetry, short stories & curious things, I'm also a developmental editor. I take my coffee milky and sweet, but prefer  my art dark and intense. I enjoy articulating the feminine perspective, & am fascinated by the place where words emerge from our most physical of experiences.

My short story "Motherlines" was published in Australian anthology Stew and Sinkers  (2013),  and my  essay on the life model features in literary journal  Etchings (#12 Visual Eyes, Ilura Press ).
