After a nice drive up to Lafayette, CO, it was my pleasure to pick up two incredible pieces by Katarina Bailot inspired by the poems “My Soul” by Ashley E., and “My Wish for Me…” by Natalina R.

Katarina graduated from Konawaena Highschool in Kealakekua, HI in 1981, where she photographed the yearbook and worked as an assistant photographer at the newspaper and for celebrity weddings.  She has since received nationally recognized awards, grants, and/or fellowships including the 2008 & 2007 Editor Choice Award Recipient by International Library of Poetry, Sounds of Poetry CD & Anthology, the 2006 Audience Choice Award Recipient by Longmont Council of the Arts for best performing Poet, and the 1989 Communication Award by Colorado Mountain College.
