“My workshops, artist salons, and readings are known for humor, and authenticity.” Ms. Rancourt states. Her metaphors are rich with sensuality and honesty, reaffirming her connectedness to nature and the power of place. Inspired by the multiracial poetess, Ai, Ms. Rancourt remarks, “poetry isn’t always pastoral fantasy, sometimes it is the skill of finding the beauty in a single moment, a single gesture, and the courage to write about that truth no matter where you are or what is happening around you. Artists have a responsibility.”
