Grew up with the best music all around me. Was fortunate to have parents that loved music, some deep, rare finds. I've always been a writer, everything from romance, family tree and historical research to children's stories. I started painting by fluke less than 10 years ago. Seems like I've dreamed the images and lived the stories my entire life, now I can express them through my work.
I escape into painting, writing and mining music for samples. I express using oils on canvas and creating 2D traditional cut and paste paper collages. Like to zone out to deep, rare and underground music, the non-accessible stuff, you rarely hear.
Habitual diversion of the mind to purely imaginative activity or entertainment as an escape from reality and routine. All that and a glass of Chardonnay.
