About Me

On the portage trail
On the portage trail

I enjoy writing poetry both for the page and for oral performance and have published poems in literary magazines and dramatized them on theatre stages, in classrooms, and around campfires on canoe trips.

 Working with dancers, musicians, and visual artists, I am particularly interested in the collaborative process of creativity. Joint projects have ranged from storytelling to choral compositions, from dance performances to theatrical pieces set in outdoor natural environments.

For many years I enacted mythic tales in several R. Murray Schafer productions: Princess of the Stars, The Enchanted Forest, and the collaborative “co-opera”, And Wolf Shall Inherit the Moon.

Living in Kitchener, Ontario, I am pleased to have been a recipient of a Waterloo Region Arts Award.
