Wait, WHAT? Music and painting?

Where painting and music meet
Music has taught me everything essential about creating paintings: Inspiring, dreaming, exploring, inventing--reflecting the emotional and "motional" world created by a piece of music. The paintings are chronicles of my encounters with music. I try to make each work a fusion of air, light and passion, and its been a honor to explore and immerse myself in both new and old masterworks of sound.  In 2016, I founded an art-music making performance laboratory, called Parallel Play SF with co-creator Deanna Badizadegan, violist and virtuoso collaborator. We create monthly experiences fusing art and music in the studio, and we invite audiences to participate, learn and enjoy.
