Dreesen, Editor – Haiga: Modern
Art with Haiku
Jerry Dreesen has been writing poetry for more than forty years. Since his retirement in 2002, he has discovered the challenging world of haiku and the art of haiga, the combination of art and haiku into one art form. Jerry spends much of his time now creating haiga watercolor images as well as creating and selling watercolor note cards. When time permits he also makes artist trading cards (ATCs) from his watercolor and pen images and draws cartoons for his own enjoyment. He continues to write free verse poetry and has been featured poet at several local poetry readings.
Jerry has created an art and poetry e-gallery that features his haiga and photo-haiku: http://www.jerrydreesen.com . He recently has become an avid blogger. His blog, http://www.jerrydreesen.blogspot.com includes his non-haiga art as well as free verse poetry.
Jerry’s watercolor haiga has been featured in Simply Haiku, Moments, Reeds, Mindfire Revisited and Haiga-On-Line as well as others.
A collection of Jerry's abstract watercolors and haiku were published in Simply Haiku, January/February 2004, v2n1.
