Poetry. Edited by Francesc Gil-Lluch and Patricia Holt. This is a bilingual (English-Catalan) collection of aphorisms and complementary drawings by Carolyn Mary Kleefeld, translated into Spanish by August Bover, and co-published by Edicions Saldonar of Barcelona, Spain, and Cross-Cultural Communications of Merrick, NY, USA.
Born in Catford, England, Carolyn Mary Kleefeld grew up in southern California, where she studied art and psychology at UCLA. In 1980 she moved to her cliff-side home high above the Pacific Ocean in Big Sur, where she studies, writes, and paints amidst the surrounding wilderness. A passion for creative expression and a lifelong fascination with spiritual transformation have propelled Carolyn to become an award-winning poet, writer, and artist. She is the author of twenty books, most recently SEMILLAS DEL ALMA (Cross-Cultural Communications, 2021) and THE DIVINE KISS (Cross-Cultural Communications, 2017). Carolyn's poems have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize. Her first book, Climates of the Mind, was translated into Braille by the Library of Congress. Her writings have been translated into over 15 languages, and six of her publications are available in bilingual or trilingual editions, published internationally. Over the past three decades, Carolyn has created an extensive and diverse body of paintings and drawings, ranging in style from romantic figurative to abstract. The Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art at Pepperdine University exhibited a retrospective of Carolyn's paintings and drawings in 2008 and published a catalog, Carolyn Mary Kleefeld: Visions from Big Sur, with commentary by Michael Zakian, PhD, curator and director. Carolyn's art is featured internationally in galleries, museums, private collections, and multimedia presentations.Author City: BIG SUR, CA USA
