Original abstract paintings that translate the language of music...
I am an abstract expressionist painter that translates music into paintings.
In other words, I take one abstract language, music, and translate it into another abstract language, painting. Many painters create art that is inspired by music. My process of creating art goes beyond inspiration. As I plan to start a painting, I dive into the music mindfully and study of the music scores. I render key phrases, runs, or themes as I translate the sounds visually in my sketchbook. Different chords and phrases translate to different colors and textures. Each painting is unique. I invite you to visit my site and hope you enjoy viewing my paintings.
