Blake, Paul C.
In 1996, I earned the Doctor of Arts degree from the School of Education at New York University. I continued to work as a visual arts teacher for many years, until now; I’m recently retired. I am presently a creative writer and painter of stories dear to my heart. I published my first novel, A String of Knots, in 2008. Now, completing my second novel. I am an artist and poet at heart. I write mostly in the Sonnet form and the Haiku form. As a poet, my lyrical writing mostly relates to nature, and love including reflections of the beautiful sublime. As a visual artist, I paint an abstraction of nature with inclination toward the decorative and transcendental aspects. You may see more of me at the following address.
