Meet the Poet

She has written about, painted, and studied Eastern health arts. More recently she has become a writer of short stories, children books, and poetry; she is a mosaic artist; and a master of Tai Chi and Qigong (Energy Work). Most of her writing has been published in national and local magazines and newsletters such as Qi Journal, Tai Chi Journal, Natural Awakenings and Crazy Wisdom Journal.
