“My work focuses on emotion and rhythm primarily through music. I am fascinated by a spontaneous raw moment in a performance. I attempt to capture that moment, allowing the viewer an insight into the soul of a performance – hoping to entice the viewer to ‘feel’ the beat and ‘hear’ the music in my paintings and drawings.”

The Ode to Pain monotypes are a continuation of a series that I began twelve years ago. The series began in drawing and painting and now continues in print. They are homage to a print that I acquired in the late 1990’s. The series reoccurs in my work when chronicling the memory of pain that is left behind.
