DESCRIPTION: Paintings, Unframed, Acrylic on canvas

ARTIST STATEMENT: After teaching music for a decade and now making art, the correlation between the two is clear to me. While music is auditory and art is visual, the terminology is very much the same. Complex sounds, spaces, textures and tones translate into intricate surfaces making a painting very rich. These musical ideas inform all of my work. Sometimes the rhythms are submerged and sometimes they rise to the top. Striving to paint emotion, I want to create the awe, the wonder, the experience we feel in.
