I’ve played since I was 14 years old. My grandparents, parents, siblings, some of our kids, and most of my friends are musicians. So, music has been a huge part of my life and naturally finds its way into my paintings. It’s was interesting finding myself lost in “the zone” while painting a guitar, just as musicians are when playing music, completely absorbed by the creative process; there’s nothing quite like it!
