Artist Statement: “Music is my second language, and having descended from generations of professional musicians, it is literally in my DNA. During the process of painting, I feel a familiar rhythm in the motion of the brush across the canvas. I hear music in color, and colors have what feels like a musical effect on me. Certain colors seem to be specific notes and combinations of colors are phrases.
I have always been drawn to the music of the Impressionist composers such as Ravel and Debussy, where the melodies can seem hidden beneath shimmering harmonies. I would describe my art as impressionist in nature. Over time I have begun painting with less detail, giving less information, so that the viewer can bring their own experiences and reactions to the painting. I hope my paintings invite the viewer to look closer and to become involved in the story,"
