After two interdisciplinary MA degrees, I pursued my PhD in Aesthetic Studies, with a focus on both art and religion. I teach writing, humanities, and film and art appreciation at the Art Institute of Dallas and two community colleges, as well as serving as an instructor for the Wilmette Institute. I have published essays, fiction, poetry, and biography and recently created a publishing avenue, Nine Petal Press. With my husband Tim Perry, I created the documentary film, “Luminous Journey: ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in America, 1912” and am now working on “‘Abdu’l-Bahá in France” as well as a book about poet Roger White and a children’s book contrasting God-made aspects with those that are human-made. Among my favorite research subjects are ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s travels; Sarah Farmer and Green Acre history; women and peace; intercultural understanding; and the arts. I serve on a Film Festival organizing team and sponsor an international dinner and film series through the Museum of International Cultures.
