Joanna Rosinska, a native of Poland, has been a lyricist, musician, playwright, stage director and journalist. She currently writes poetry, short stories, creates cartoons and soundscapes (multilayered performances based on poems) as well as translates and publishes Polish poets in the USA. Her particular interests in poetry and visual arts are nature and surrealism. She is a member of various poetic groups including OSPA, published in several small Northwest publications and owns Primary Remiges, ABN an art publishing business.

Joanna lives with her life-partner and their furry kids in Corvallis, Oregon where she trains dogs and is working toward becoming a dog behavior consultant. She is also an avid dressage rider.

Her upcoming book: "Absurdities: Poems of Obsessions and Oddity" with complementary CD is a collection of chuckle-spurring poems, drawings, photographs and musical experiences picturing odd human behavior.
