Writing

The Forest

Release: April 28, 2021
Publisher: Riza Press

My debut poetry collection is the first part of an exploratory journey through the collective experience of literature and art. Assimilated with a fate-driven poetic method using handwritten phrases on paper slips, The Forest is a three-act journey that invites the reader into itself as it explores what it means to be human and how we live and exist. The collection is the inspirational basis of an immersive visual and literary art installation of the same name currently being developed with Houston-based artist Mari Omori.
