The Genius of Thelonius
Acrylic on Canvas 48”x36”
I’m an interdisciplinary artist, merging music and improvisational visual art on the stage, a presentation that blends both disciplines, singing and painting. I paint sounds that I hear. Music from both past and current jazz musicians translates into color and texture. Improvising on canvas is an extension of the music I perform and listen to. It’s about nuances and dynamics that will translate visually onto the canvas. New forms, colors and textures are a continual emergence, hence I will always consider myself an emerging artist.
