Deanne Mineau, Poetry collaborations, Art and Poetry book:Coast Inspired, Director CCA, Drummer Tarot and Rune Reader
I came to the Sunshine Coast 10 years ago from North Vancouver. I am a writer and poet, reader of Tarot and Runes, lover of percussion, and a private tutor in French and English as a 2nd language.
With my good friend, the artist Margot Hallman, we have created two books. “Coming Home” was published so that my poetry and her art remain together and accessible, even once sold or donated to fundraising events. “Coast Inspired” was published in time for the Festival of the Written Arts, August 2019.
May our work help others to know and protect these sacred places.
I am delighted to collaborate with other artists, to bring my words to their art. I drum to both First Nations and African music, with the forests, the waves, the moon…on the rhythms of the Ancestors.
At the Reading room of our home I hold Tarot and Rune sessions around my Grandmother’s burled walnut table.
On order, I create Forest Garden Baskets.
A collaboration of poetry and art. Margot’s paintings and my words attempt to express the magic of the ever-changing energy of air, land, water and light. The awe and the love for this place, on the unceded territory of the shishalh nation, inspire us both to evoke respect for and protection of our sacred land and waters.
I will be doing poetry readings from 1 to 2 pm Saturday and Sunday of the Art Crawl.
We will have our book, Coast Inspired, for sale during the Art Crawl.
