Jenean C. Gilstrap, Gypsy Woman

Jenean C. Gilstrap, Gypsy Woman

We are all gypsies of a sort – wandering traveling through this life other lives space and time here there and yon on roads less traveled – following the path of the sun and the trail of the stars to worlds known and unknown – imagined and/or real – from yesterday and today into tomorrow.  So come along with me and we’ll dance under the sun among the stars and over the moon – sharing our words and visions around the campfire here.

About Jenean C. Gilstrap

From her first literary work [at the age of eight], The Life of George Washington, a play in which she also played the role of Martha Washington, Ms. Gilstrap’s work has evolved to her present focus on poetry. By her teens, she was writing both short stories and poetry prolifically, all the while enmeshed in oil painting and charcoal drawings. Later, as an adult, she explored sculpture, pottery making and oil pastels as she continued putting to paper the words that flowed from her heart.  Always the individualist, she chooses not to follow any pre-conceived pattern for the outlay of these words – rather, she allows them the freedom to forge their own path as they make their way from pen to paper. Her art work today involves acrylics on large canvasses. Born in Washington, but having lived in more places than she can count, north south east and west, her roots remain in Louisiana, the place she calls home.

So it is that “poetry, painting and other writing on love and life and things thereof from the heart and through the eyes of a Louisiana gypsy spirit travelin’ roads less traveled” defines the persona and artistic endeavors of this writer/artist.

Her poetry has been published in YAREAH MAGAZINE numerous times and her piece “The Granite God” was the winning poem in Painted Bride Quarterly Sidebar #12 [2012].  In addition, her work has been featured in performance poetry productions in Louisiana and her short story, Retribution, published in the Helicon Literary Magazine there.  Ms. Gilstrap and her current blog [http://gypsywomanworld.blogspot.com] have been included as story elements in Ghost Key, the most recent fictional work of award-winning author Trish MacGregor [released August 2012].

She currently divides her time between Louisiana and the east coast as she completes the manuscripts of her first two volumes of poetry.

Jenean C Gilstrap

Since childhood, Ms. Gilstrap has had a love of words-of writing and other arts. An individualist, she chooses not to follow any pre-conceived pattern for the outlay of these words – rather, she allows them the freedom to forge their own path as they make their way from her heart to pen to paper. Her art work involves both photography and mixed media on large canvasses. She is a weekly featured poet in Yareah Magazine where her works have appeared for more than a year. Her piece The Granite God was the winning poem in Painted Bride Quarterly Sidebar #12 [2012]. Her work has been featured in performance poetry theatrical productions in Louisiana and her short story, Retribution, published in the Helicon Literary Magazine there. She and her gypsywomanworld blog are included as character/story elements in Ghost Key, the fictional work of award-winning author Trish MacGregor. Her first volume of poetry [2013], words unspoken, is available in both paperback and on kindle at amazon. She currently divides her time between her home in Louisiana and the east coast as she completes her second volume of poetry to be published in 2013.
