Zachary Bukovich


527 Farm House Ln
Ames IA


Zack Bukovich is a poet and painter from Eagle, Colorado--a small town in the Rockies. His initial love of language and the landscape came from an early love of reading and the inspiration he felt quietly wandering the mountains.

After graduating from Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado with a bachelor’s degree in Writing, Zack moved to Berlin, Germany where he lived for three years, teaching English and furthering his studies in painting.

His work explores themes of identity, grief, love, and loss. Influenced by the Haiku and lineages of Eastern and Western impressionists, Zack enjoys writing and painting in a direct way that vividly captures a specific moment in time. In his free time, Zack likes to cook, bake and hike with his dog, Otis.
