Terrylene is creating ASL Poetry

patrons

$8
per month

I look forward to sharing ASL poetry with the Deaf community and their friends. Basically anyone who loves poetry may gather here! 
I am a native of American Sign Language (ASL) from a five generation of Deaf family. My ASL poetry guides one through a mystical journey of the human spirit. Some of you may know me as an ASL poet, stage, film and television actress.  Or perhaps you may know me for my advocacy work. My passions for early bi-literacy access for all young children, and for mental wellness in ASL. (I am eternally sending love to my son, Gio in heaven.) I hope you are inspired to become my patron. I look forward to having so much fun with you and let ASL poetry come to life for you all!

Special thanks: Anderson Art Center, Deaf Artist Residency Program & their NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) grant supporting my work as ASL poet.
