Writer, Reporter, Editor
I am a writer and editor in all genres, with a particular passion for music and the arts. My work includes a diverse range of editorial projects for individuals and institutions plus freelance articles for print and online publications. Beyond the art of language, I’m studying the non-verbal, non-linear practice of sound healing with tibetan bowls. After a course of study at the Tibetan Bowl Sound Healing School with Diane Mandle in California, I am currently working towards my certification in the field. I offer sessions for personal sound healing work and public presentations with Tibetan Singing Bowls.
Currently living in San Miguel Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico with my son, Kevin.

Maya Horton is a visual artist based in NY. Her work is inspired by the stories and archetypes embedded in land, plant and animal medicine, mythology and collective memory. Drawing and painting has always been a way for her to navigate paradoxes and nuance, by exploring details that both contain and comprise the whole.
She recently spent six months as artist-in-residence at Stony Point Center in the Hudson Valley, and wrote an article about the art she created there and her relationship with black vultures as a sociopolitical lens on Trump’s America. You can read that article here.
