Minerva Bloom is a bilingual poet and nature photographer born in 1959[1] in Tinguindin, Michoacán[2] a small town nestled in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico. She has been living and is a citizen of the USA, since 1983 and writes poetry both in English and her native Spanish language. She currently resides in the state of Florida.

Minerva Bloom has published books of poetry and photography and has contributed for several international poetry and art anthologies. In the years 1999 and 2000 she worked with Nobel Prize candidate Marcia Theophilo in the translation of selected poems. Her nature photography has been chosen by several international poetry authors for their book covers. On the Internet, her contributions can be found at several journals and literary zines dedicated to the art of haiga and haiku, as well as with educational calendars in the fields of travel, history and tourism. Capturing images of the natural world (in words and visuals), is the focus of Minerva Bloom's work.

Artist's Statement at Poetic Portal:[3]

"When I write or make art, I'm in a state of enchantment and this state is one of certainty. Where else is yourself to be found? Always in the deepest enchantment that you have experienced. For me, it is about enjoying the process of creation. Talk of method and style seems trivial: I became interested in meaning and want simply to be a witness and experience the world around me. I take photographs, create art and write, because it's an organic and vital thing for me to do". -Minerva Bloom
