Workshops

I am an engaged and experienced public speaker and workshop leader. 
I most enjoy discussing art, the creative process and dissolving creative blocks.
I am available to lead small groups, address full audiences and conduct one-on-one creative collaborative workshops.

I have animated several round table creative workshops around the topics of :
art, asemic writing, collage, comics, creativity, found art, hybrid lit, inspiration, visual poetry, zines
