I am an Alumni of Berklee College of Music Boston, MA and have been a musician (percussionist) both performing and teaching private lessons for many years. I was looking for another way to express myself in the arts and found a passion for painting.
My work developed into Geometric Abstract Art with an emphasis on creating clean straight lines. I start out by drawing and manipulating shapes and colors until I achieve the desire effect. In some pieces I like to create visual paths for the eyes to follow behind, around or through other geometric shapes.
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 building itself but sometimes the contrast of blue sky against different building structures made of concrete or metal that are visually interesting to me.
I recently discovered the works of Contemporary Artist Bryce Hudson and began experimenting with shading to create more depth and dimension to my work. I look forward to developing my art and enjoying this additional path of creativity.
