Phyllis unites her deep love of writing and composing with a passion for humanitarian service. Her creative work is inspired by a profound desire to help create a less violent and more just and equitable world for this and future generations.

“I believe the arts help make the world,” Phyllis says. “They help shape it, help it breathe. They help it survive, and become.” Her primary artistic tools for touching the world are the written word and music. Through them she tries, in her own small way, to “grow the peace.”
