Now at twenty-one, I am publishing My Eden Home, a book of illustrated, rhyming poetry which I finished composing when I was still nineteen.

[Front Cover can be seen here: ]

My Eden Home is a testament to my progression as an artist: both as a poet and as an illustrator. It spans from the beginnings of childhood to full maturity. The writing is a testimony to my love and respect for rhyming poetry, which, admittedly, is no longer considered popular in our modern, free-verse loving era. And much of the artwork that you see here on this site, even the most detailed, is only a shadow of what I have been able to put into this book. Examples:

At the end of the book, I place poems about my father, who passed away when I was thirteen. It is after one such poem that the book is named. While about a personal grief, My Eden Home is also about the happiness of the childhood from which we are all expelled at one time or another.

My Eden Home includes seventy-seven poems of varying lengths, spanning from one stanza, to two pages. The poems were written across seven years, from 2003 to 2010, ending with my graduation from high-school. The illustrations which accompany each of the poems are black and white ink drawings, done primarily in my first year of college.

My Eden Home.
