As an arts journalist for 30+ years based in Minneapolis/St. Paul, I wrote for online and print publications from Hyperallergic to Dance Magazine, Architectural Record to RISE, Horticulture to Audubon, Public Art Review to Nature Conservancy. My work included criticism, news, features, interviews, and profiles. Dance, visual art, architecture and design, theater, music--I covered it all. I wrote the books The Dance Bible: The complete resource for aspiring dancers and Charles R. Stinson Architects: Compositions in Nature. Essays commissioned by artists for their books include "Once Upon a Time..." Bedtime Stories: Sculptures Reimagined, an artist book by Rebecca Krinke; "To Catch the Fact: Vesna Kittleson's Self Portraits"
Synthesis: Art by Vesna Kittleson; and "Odes for Etudes," the work of Moira Bateman.
Now living in Northern Arizona, I write poetry and creative nonfiction. My work has appeared in Bridge Eight, Thin Air Magazine, HerStry, The Ekphrastic Review, and other publications. I also write for Southwest Contemporary and teach arts writing at the American Institute of Indian Arts. In 2023, I received the Scuglik Memorial Residency in ekphrastic writing with Write On, Door County in Wisconsin, and am working on a series of ekphrastic pieces inspired by the work of ceramicist and installation artist Rebecca Carlton.
