Greetings! My name is Kaecey McCormick, and I'm writer and visual artist located in the San Francisco Bay Area. My poetry and prose has found a home or is forthcoming in different online and print journals including One Sentence Poems, Clockhouse, and Poetry South and two chapbooks, Sleeping with Demons (2023) and Pixelated Tears (2018). I served as poet laureate for the city of Cupertino, California, from 2018-2020, and when I'm not writing or making art, I'm hiking in the beautiful hills and mountains of Northern California, spending time with my family, or reading a book.
My creative life bloomed when I embraced the concept of being an everyday creative - someone focused more on the process or creativity, on its many benefits rather than the finished product; someone who comes to the page or canvas with a willingness to experiment and grow; someone who celebrates the unique creative expression and abilities of all people.
Visual art is a natural extension of my imaginative side, and I'm rarely without my art supplies - even on the go. I'm not a professional artist, but art plays such a large role in my life that a few years ago, I began embracing the identity of "artist." I work intuitively, from a place of intention, and change my tools and materials when it feels right.
