Poetry Project With Lisa
My friend Lisa introduced me to the Portsmouth Poet Laureate Program. This year’s Poet Laureate, Mark DeCarteret, invited poets and artists to collaborate on a postcard project called “Wish You Were Here”. Lisa wrote a poem for me on the back of a blank postcard. She mailed it to me with the hope that I would create a piece of art on the other side, inspired by her poem. And I did!

Featured Artist in February 2010
I was the featured artist at The Good Tern Cafe in Rockland, Maine for the month of February 2010. The above clip is from The Free Press. Below is my artist’s statement.
The cows in these photos belonged to another dairy farming friend of mine, Wayne Cunningham. I’ve worked off and on for Wayne milking cows since I was in 8th grade. I bought my first pet cow from him when I was in 6th grade and resold her to Wayne when I was in 8th grade.
The cows pictured in this series are from Wayne’s most recent herd, which was sold in the summer of 2009 due to the economic situation and a very poor haying season. Over 80 of the bovine girls were sent to slaughter in Pennsylvania with funding coming from a dairy farming cooperative called Cooperatives Working Together. (Their website is www.cwt.coop.) I urge everyone to research this subject. Having been personally attached and connected to the cows, I found this financing of mass slaughter traumatizing. I hope my photos convey my love for these creatures as well as reveal the intelligence I believe they possess as a species.
