My Writing

In 2010 I began a memoir entitled Semesterland, a true tale of connections between my journey through traditional academia and struggle to recover from a troubled childhood — although I have been a secret writer of journals since 1982, when I started college and psychotherapy at the same time.

Several stand alone autobiographical essays have since been published, including Art Education (Still Point Arts Quarterly) and Under The Piano (Line Zero), both in 2013, Thematic Development, Issue 5, Botticelli Magazine and Smartening Up (2014) which won an Honorable Mention in Spruce Mountain Press’ Past Loves Contest.

In 2014 I began keeping the artbagladyblog, stories about my experiences as a teaching artist to the under-served, including the homeless, women and children fleeing domestic violence, and at-risk kidz in middle and high schools. However, in late 2015 I stopped posting, and have since removed The Art Bag Lady Blog because I am transforming that blog into a memoir, entitled The Art Bag Lady.
