- When did you start painting, how would you describe your artistic viewpoint? I started painting and sculpting in 2009, for a local exhibit here in Greenwich. My viewpoint is captured by movement and layers. It can be external/physical, internal/emotional, or non physical/musical. I either capture movement in a still image, or try to keep that energy moving on the canvas/sculpture.
- You have so many talents and interests, what is your favorite -- music, art etc...I’ve always loved building things, and that’s what has always driven me as a musician, and in turn and artist. When I play in the symphony, or my quartet, I’m exponentially inspired to create art. My goal is to have them simultaneously created in future projects, however that may be.
- Where are you from & how did you choose to live in Greenwich. I grew up in Rhode Island, with a lot of time spent in upstate NY. I finished my Master of Music Performance at SUNY Purchase and started my career as a performer/educator here in Greenwich, 15 years ago. I enjoy the small town feel, being close to the ocean, and it’s proximity to the city.
