     As an adolescent growing up, my favorite subjects in school were art and music. To my surprise, I would combine the two together as I would go home and paint my favorite musicians and bands while listening to their songs. Fast forward 30 years later as I revisit my adolescent days creating ‘Music Through the Ages’, art collectors are enjoying my pieces and displaying them at their homes.

     Music is the driving force and inspiration for my artwork. Whatever song motivates me at the moment will be splashed onto the canvas with a paint brush. Occasionally, I stand in front of a white canvas without knowing what the outcome will be. The whole experience will be a discovery. Not knowing exactly where the feel of the paint will take me, I just let go of myself to express my subconscious feelings and thoughts. My work can be labeled as pop art and my pieces are created on canvas using acrylic medium.

     My ambition is to evoke passionate emotions for my art collectors, while they connect with my melodic pieces. I want my paintings to shake the viewer, to move them. I want them to feel the emotion from the song through the artwork. I want the consumer to find the piece that best speaks to them. 

 

    It can often be difficult to put into words the emotions that music evokes. The range of emotion a person can feel while listening to music is truly unmeasurable. It can change your mood in a matter of seconds. It releases endorphins in the brain. With high endorphin levels, we have fewer negative effects of stress. Music is such a powerful tool. It has an intense yet positive impact on physical and mental health. It can help increase focus, clear our minds, and improve our overall well-being. It can bring up memories from the past, help people work together, increase motivation, and bring out creativity. Music is a universal language.
