Music has always been a big part of my life. I remember growing up listening to my mom's records or getting lost in the airwaves riding in my dad's car. A love affair with music and lyrics began at an early age and has only grown deeper over time. There is always music playing when I'm creating and there are songs that inspire many of my pieces. In 2015 I decided to begin with 6 songs from different artists that I admire and interpret the lyrics from my perspective onto canvas. I used imagery, color and symbols to convey how each of these songs plays out in my head.
