Bio: I am a multi-genre artist. I paint images with sound. I use many colors and mediums to paint these soundscapes and color your world with music. Every idea is a visual image, a picture, a journey in my head. I am exhibiting these "pictures" in the gallery for all to see and hear. I hope that everyone finds at least one image that is pleasing and touches you in a positive way.

Since the British invasion of the 60's, I've had a passion for music. As a teenager, I listened in on many garage bands and dreamed of pursuing music myself. My parents discouraged it because "You can’t make a living playing music". Wanted to learn rock guitar, but the teachers of the day wouldn't teach it because "Rock and roll is not real music". Still, I wrote songs in high school disguised as poetry. Fast forward to adulthood, got married, took on the responsibilities of family and involvement in a family business. Dream gone, though I did play around on the guitar and wrote and played original songs in church occasionally (which was a hard thing because playing the “devil’s music” in church was frowned upon back in those days). I also studied the art of synthesis, and sound development, from mimicking real instruments to the other worldly sounds analog synths were known for, bought a monophonic Korg and created a patch book of sounds. Eventually, when the modern digital workstations came of age, I sequenced accompaniment tracks for my songs and along with guitar, recorded these ideas to cassette.
