Making my presence eternal
with words before I part,
Translating thoughts of imagery
in every word through every heart


Future Fossil

Denae Terese Hintze is a designer, writer and photographer based in Illinois. She is a linguist who uses creative logic to compliment the complexity of the mind and heart.

Striving through transformation and adaptivity, she became drawn to the healing of words and magic of imagination. Denae sees potential that shines brighter than the defaults of this reality, and spends her time trying to become how it makes her feel. She will continue to spend her life translating imagery in hopes to heal others the way she has been able to heal herself.

As daylight burns daylight, I will dream myself into something new
