Mapping The Soul-Skin

Unapologetically uncomfortable and darkish this afternoon!

Mapping The Soul-Skin

After a bit of a break, I’m back at my desk with paint and torn book pages, making a beautiful mess.


Mapping The Soul-Skin is my latest series of found-word art-poems. The plan is to produce one a week for 12 weeks on a Monday. The best news it that, unlike the previous series, they will be available for immediate sale. 


Women Who Run With The Wolves is the source text for the series and all the artwork is in monochrome turquoise. 

It feels great to be back in the company of word fragments and a tube of glue. And as if by perfect alignment, Angus and Julia Stone have a new album as a soundtrack for the next few months of creation.


Each poem’s uniqueness is assured by the imperfection in its cut and paste design.  Poems are approximately C5 sized and are on a range of paper thicknesses to achieve different effects. All are hand named and numbered. 

Purchase price is $35 with $3 worldwide postage. All payments processed through PayPal.Me unless otherwise organised.

My Heart is a Viking Funeral

you’d wake at her breast
bound to be close by
float and some to a Viking funeral

Sunday, I discovered a new form of poetry. A mash up between found poetry and bibliomancy. This poem is constructed from randomly chosen fragments of three different books. 

Line one comes from Simon Kindt’s No Revelation, two from Tim Winton’s The Turning and three from Amanda Oalmers The Art of Asking

This is just the first taste of what’s to come.
