My work is inspired by the notes, composition and personality of the early jazz greats...Charlie Mingus, Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck and others.
By weaving colors on the canvas just as a musician improv 's brings a spontaneity of creating. The trick to jazz and art improvisation is creating with both spontaneous creativity & intentional conviction.
"You've got to find some way of saying it without saying it." - Duke Ellington
I'm about painting..and living boldly;
I love jazz music...especially the early masters like John Coltrane, Charlie Mingus, Miles Davis.
I love traveling...but I love coming home even more.
I'm not about pretense, status or social climbers or snobs.
I love my husband, my family and my dog Grizzly, cat Smudge...and try to show them daily in some small (or big) way.
I'm about dancing in kitchens...occassionally until the wee hours of the morning.
I'm not about fads, competing or ugly gossip...over it.
I love coffee...but only early in the morning.
I love modern abstract art
