Artist Statement

ARTIST STATEMENT Grounded in abstract expressionism, my work joins the visual pleasure of painting with the audio impact of music. My palette is the keyboard, and each of the twelve hues in Johannes Ittenâ??s Color Wheel corresponds to a musical note or jazz progression within a major or minor key. The juxtaposition of color, line, and shape affect the perception of the painted image, just as notes, progressions, and chords come together in a jazz composition. My hope is that you will hear a sound or a vibration as you look.
