about the artist

I began my professional life as a violinist, but while performing around the world, I pursued an extensive & eclectic education in the visual arts, primarily at Gage Academy of Art in Seattle. For me, art is almost a physical manifestation of music. I am fascinated by the endless ways that colors, like sounds, can be layered and combined to create meaning and emotional content. Music takes us out of our everyday  world and transports us to another; I love abstract art for its ability to do the same. I hope that my work will invite contemplation and bring mystery and beauty to its viewers.
