In the process of publishing my poems, often which are the result of inspiration from a particular artwork or photograph, I have been sourcing the creators of the works I have come across.
I am overwhelmed by the generosity of the artists and photographers I have approached, seeking their permission to use their work to accompany my poems.
As this process will be an ongoing one for as long as I write my poems, I wish to extend my sincere thanks to all the artists and photographers who have so freely allowed me to use their beautiful creations with my poems.
It has been a humbling experience and I am truly thankful that every artist and photographer I have contacted, feel that my poems do justice to their artworks and photos.
May this wonderful creative union of the visual with the written word long continue.
