I see color and texture in music.

Much of my art comes from my understanding of music. Recorded and live music often triggers, or even dictates, the compositional structures I create in my studio.

I try to get people looking beyond the obvious.

Colors reflected into the wall are meant to draw you into the work. I'm fascinated by the way color and form affect us.

Inspired by a crashing wave. A union of water and music.

I've always been fascinated by crashing waves—the energy of color, water, and music.

Making is my talking

It’s a blast working on commissioned art projects. I get to explore ideas with new and engaging people in a way that I’m most comfortable-through visual language. I feel fortunate because my work grows with their support and I appreciate their interest.
