“I explore the connection between music and visual art.
As a classically trained pianist and abstract expressionist artist, I see remarkable similarity between music and painting.
Music's consistency of key and instrumentation translates to a unified color palate and repetitive marks. Lyrical motifs result in gestural, fluid marks while sharp notes become angular, even raw pointed strokes.
The texture and weight of the music dictate my choices in color and shape. Tension provides an imbalanced and unresolved quality, imbuing the paintings with energy strength and spontaneity.
Then comes silence. Time for evaluation and acknowledging what has been left unsaid. This leads to discovery that is communicated to the canvas by introducing slow and deliberate marks. The process of refining lines and color indicates completion of the work.
I am a translator, expressing the robust complexity and aesthetics of classical music on canvas. "
Having started playing the piano at the age of four, she graduated with a degree in music from the University of Illinois, and now uses classical music to inspire her artwork.
She describes her painting process as a totally immersive and emotional experience. From music to canvas, her approach is spontaneous and is often met with new an unexpected results.
As a result, her works are lyrical, dynamic, and multilayered—much like the music from which she draws inspiration.
