Michael writes and creates art because nature wills him to it. He recently left a dystopian suburb of Seattle and retreated to the kneehills of the Olympic mountains, cut the cable, bought whiskey, pen and paper, old cameras and art supplies. Now he finds inspiration from deep woods, Olympic Mountains, less so from demons. Though they are there. He is working on a photo collection from around the area called “Sequim Backroads”.You can find his words and art works at ONEOFAKIND GALLERY and poetry on-line at Dodging the Rain, Nine Muses Poetry, Whispers, Plum Tree Tavern and other poetry zines and several anthologies. His recent collections, “Boundary Points” and “Cresting the Salish” are also available on Amazon.
