I am an Alumni of Berklee College of Music Boston, MA and have been a musician for many years. I was looking for another way to express myself in the arts and found a passion for painting. I am a self taught Artist.
I describe my art as "Modern Abstract" with an emphasis on using geometric shapes
to create depth and dimension. I begin by drawing and manipulating shapes and colors until I achieve the desired effect. In the style of my paintings you see a representation of a process that is both organized and methodical. The technique of creating sharp lines is apparent throughout each piece.
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. The contrast of a modern structure against blue sky is visually striking to me.
I find the process of creating art and music gratifying and feel fortunate to be able to do both. I believe the Arts are vital to society and makes each of our lives richer.
