The first of two new series is of musicians, using layers of plexiglass to create shadow and dimension. The second series, "Hail To The Chief" are portraits of American Presidents who played musical instruments, and were done with digital and other mixed media techniques.
Other mixed media pieces/collages are also musically themed. These abstract works explore different techniques that create dimension such as inverting canvases and use a limited palate of bold colors.
Sculptures inspired by a love of music are created with piano parts, vinyl records, and other found objects. A jewelry series uses unusual piano parts, many of which are beneath the sound board and not visible to the naked eye.
The acrylic paintings make up a series of works inspired by nature, its beauty, contrasts and spontaneity. This very different style is aimed at communicating an emotional response to music. Natures melodic, rhythmic and harmonic landscape is created using a textural approach via the palate knife, many layers of paint and varied brush strokes. A broad palate is often used to represent nature's complexity and diversity. In all artistic endeavors, music permeates through.
