His evocative simplicity, his technical originality and concision. He is able to stir my imagination with very few everyday words.

Rabbit – Sophie Robinson

Her play with form and language are striking.

Mama Amazonica – Pascale Petit

How wild nature and human experience are intertwined with a vitality and fresh use of metaphor that transcends the page.

A strong and stunning voice in today’s poetry. Brave and epic poetry, with a singing imagery that is quite remarkable.
