With the poetry and art collection Haven, the husband and wife team of Kevin Patrick Sullivan and Patti Sullivan capture the essence of romance, a glimpse into the joy of human connection.

Declared by the City Council of San Luis Obispo as a “cultural asset,” Poet Laureate Emeritus of SLO Kevin Patrick Sullivan joins his wife Patti Sullivan for a collection of evocative love poems and enchanting art, intertwining tenderness and passion in a beautiful full-color collection of paintings and poems.

In the poem “Sleepers,” Sullivan writes:

Under the silkwood
sky of night
we build
inside each other
a new skin
something to be
out in the world

This book includes pieces from their ARTLIFE Archives, with Patti Sullivan’s painting and collage work pairing perfectly with the poems inside.
