Along with music, I was looking for another way to express myself in the arts and found a passion for painting. My work developed into Geometric Abstract with an emphasis on creating clean, straight lines. I start pout by drawing and manipulating shapes and colors until I achieve the desire effect.
Having a musical background has been my inspiration for several pieces. “Fortissimo” conveys the feeling of a very loud, exciting composition while a sense of rhythm is felt by the art work “Pulse”. I also find inspiration in modern architecture which conveys straight lines and distinct angles. It’s not only the buildings themselves but the contrast of blue sky against different building structures that is visually interesting to me.
I recently discovered the works of Contemporary Artist Bryce Hudson and began experimenting with shading to create more dimension to my work. I look forward to developing my art and enjoying this new path of creativity.
Painting came later in my life. I am an Alumni of Berklee College of Music and have been a musician (percussionist) for many years. Back in 2016, I was teaching an improvisation class at The Outpost Performance Space in ABQ when I heard about a members art exhibition there. I had been experimenting with acrylic painting for about a year and decided to enter. To my pleasant surprise they picked one of my paintings which also sold at that show.
Since then, I have shown in several exhibitions, 2018 Spirit Lines at Fuller Lodge Art Center, Los Alamos, NM, Color 2018 Exihibition at 3 Square Art Gallery, Fort Collins, CO and 2019 43rd Annual Juried Exhibition at Durango Art Center, Durango, CO just to name a few. In 2020, my artwork was published in the Inaugural edition of Art Folio Book and the 3rd Edition of Salann Magazine. Also this year, my piece “Fortissimo” will be display in Los Angeles, CA as part of The 2020 Billboard Show.
From 2018 – 2019 my work was displayed at Jezebel Studio & Gallery in Madrid, NM
