Music is an important part of my creative process. I listen to the great masters of Swing, Be Bop and Hard Bop as well as classic Spanish guitar. The rhythms and emotions of these artists energize my work.
For me, the process of painting is self discovery. It's a balance of my inner feelings, and solving problems that occur during the making process. My paintings deal with scale, balance, memories and relationships. Only when all these components are in harmony is the work complete. I hope that the viewer's immersion and interaction with these various components will create a beneficial and positive experience.
