Jerry has been writing poetry for more than forty years and has been practicing haiku and traditional haiga since his retirement in 2002. He has served as the haiga editor of Simply Haiku.
All of us who are on lists or forums with Jerry know his minimalist calligraphic painting style that realizes its subjects in a perfect haiku moment. I've always enjoyed his drawings, too, because of the way his pen moves quickly through both image and handwritten text, capturing the personal feeling like a seismograph.
More work may be seen on his blog, Watercolor, Pen, Photography and More (http://jerrydreesen.blogspot.com).
