Poet, Watercolorist
My poetry has appeared in numerous literary journals, among them The Southern Review, Negative Capability, Birmingham Arts Journal, Elk River Review, The Texas Observer, Ampersand Review, and Willow Springs. My poetry collection, The Sound of Falling, was published by Negative Capability Press in 2013. Memory, relation of self to Other, and how we understand ourselves in what we call "the world" are common themes.

After 50 years as a poet, in 2022 I began a fascinating exploration of watercolors and water-based inks. You can find examples of my art at . (Instagram user @vfowlkeswatercolors .)

Photography and film provide another creative outlet.
