April being National Poetry month, I once again visited elementary schools to present my poetry to kids. 

P.S.: If you know of an elementary or middle school that would like to arrange an author visit (now or in the future), please share this link with them: 

That thing in my hands? That's just my followup poetry book to 'The Bubble Collector', something I've been penning for the last occasional year or so ... Well I am happy to report the raw manuscript is (finally!) text-complete - yay! - and doubly-happy to report I have recently secured representation with a literary agency (Stimola Literary Studio of Edgewater, NJ) who will be helping me - double-yay!! - in trying to land this manuscript with a mainstream publisher. 
(Don't hold your breath though: Poetry is notoriously hard to place, and even if we manage to somehow succeed in this uphill task, it'll still take a few *years* for the actual book to hit the shelves. Thank goodness you can always get your poetry fix from 'The Bubble Collector' :) )

I am deeply honored to have been selected as one of the recipients of the 2016 Individual Arts Projects Grants from 4Culture.Org (4Culture is the cultural services agency for King County, WA)

This grant will seed the creation of a new body of larger paintings that will draw upon mythology I encountered growing up in India. These paintings will be created over the next two years and will be displayed in public exhibits in King County, WA.
