A few projects where my work has been featured as a collaborative effort with other artists, are:
In November 2019, my short poem, ‘on living brave‘, was featured in the lyrics of the song ‘Living Brave (feat. Keeper of Bees)‘ and The Ocean Beneath.
The song is available for download on Spotify, iTunes and other streaming platforms.
It was a tremendous honour having my words be a part of this beautiful song. Vicky Richardson, from the electro acoustic band, Keeper of Bees, used my words with sensitivity; blending it into her song lyrics with great skill.
You can find out more about about Keeper of Bees at their website.
In April 2020, the South African artist, jewellery designer, and psychologist, Maritha van Amerom, launched a digital art initiative called, ‘U N L O C K‘, in response to the Covid-19 lockdown in South Africa.
Maritha was inspired to create a series of limited edition digital art prints, in response to poems by certain poets and I am honoured that she chose two of my poems for her innovative project.
My short poems, ‘on living brave‘, and ‘you are not broken‘ were used in collaboration with two of her digital art pieces.

My work is regularly used in mindfulness meditations. I have a keen interest in this topic and I am always interested in hearing whether my poetry would be suitable for a meditation, or a retreat.
If you facilitate retreats, or meditation sessions, please do contact me with regards to this.
