Obelia is a “true life poet.” Her topics center around life situations and may be comical, practical, or written to bring awareness to a situation. Depending on her mood, she may write for no other reason than to entertain herself. She has performed in Okinawa, on the East Coast and various online radio shows, was a featured artist for a poetry calendar, and was interviewed for an online magazine. Heart of Crystal is her first in a series of novels, but each reads as a stand alone book. Obelia likes to challenge herself to learn and improve her art. She has chosen to express much of that through spoken word poetry. Her unique style can be felt through print or audio. She currently resides in Hampton Roads where she interacts with and supports other local artists.
