I played classical piano growing up, and music was an integral portion of my life.
As a child and young adult, some of my happiest memories were surrounding music. I often would get lost in the melodies, and stand, gently swaying as I saw the notes in my mind.
As an artist who is interested in gestural expressionism, I wondered how I could transcribe some aspects of music onto canvas. I started daydreaming about which essence of music I would try to capture. One morning, after waking from many vague and dissatisfying dreams, I thought I'd try to distill the spirit of tempo & dynamics. So far, I've decided on four in each category. This may change as I continue painting; thus far, Legato and Adagio have been birthed.
