A visual artist before she became a poet, Liz roams the landscape, searching for ways to combine image and word.
Sometimes a sixty-foot-long parentheses of prairie cord grass morphs into a poem. Or stalking the limestone barrens of Canada and Ireland produces digital ghazals.
Other times, admiration evolves into video docu-poems of other poets’ work (Don McKay, Marlene Creates, Judy Lowry). Her videos have been exhibited in national & international galleries and film festivals.
She’s Owen Sound’s inaugural Poet Laureate; co-artistic director of the Words Aloud Spoken Word Festival (www.wordsaloud.ca) and co-producer of the Festival Feature Documentary. Archive and Educational DVD.
Author of three poetry collections and numerous chapbooks, her most recent is “Addictions of a Poet Laureate.” She lives in Traverston, Ontario.
