THE VISPO BIBLE is a life's work to translate every chapter, every book, every verse of the Bible into visual poetry. I began the project in 2015, and as of May 1, 2020, i have completed 300 pages: Old Testament: Genesis, Exodus, Levitucus, Numbers, Ruth, Esther, Deuteronomy,
New Testament Acts 1-8 so far/ currently in progress,Matthew,Mark,Romans, John I, II, III, Jude, Revelation.
In 2018, I received funding from the Ontario Arts Council based on a recommendation from Coach House Books for the Vispo Bible.
