Collaborators’ Q&A: Poet Jennifer Barber: Michele’s use of line, shape, and color to evoke the marks on the page referenced in the poem illuminated for me the border between writing and visual art—how writing is a form of drawing, and vice versa. Artist Michele L’Heureux: I have been a maker of marks my entire life, and I love the image of a child’s notebook filled with marks. I am also thinking so much about the passage of time and my own aging.

Artist Michele L’Heureux is an artist and bird fanatic who works as a digital designer for a medical software company.  Poet Jennifer Barber’s collections are Works on Paper, Given Away, and Rigging the Wind. She is the founding editor of the journal Salamander, based at Suffolk University in Boston.
