49 West Coffeehouse, Winebar and Gallery was one of my first stops when I moved to Annapolis last summer!
I had done my research before moving here from Las Vegas, NV and 49 West seemed like it would be the right kind of place for as a new “creative” to the area! This last year has proven that to be true and I have been inspired in my work by many of the countless performances we are lucky enough to have hosted here at 49.
There is an energy I hope to convey in my paintings and drawings that I imagine is similar to the energy musicians hope to convey to their listeners. Much of my work is created with a soundtrack for the piece as inspiration and many of my digital works are created during live music performances.
Each painting is begun with an urge to physically interpret the visual and the emotional through the materiality of paint, oil pastels or even the moving stylus of an Apple pencil!
Each mark on the canvas, whether controlled or accidental, is met with a countermove based on the outcome.
Though born with a hand tremor I have learned to use my hand movement FOR me to support my expressive style and intuitive use of color.
I hope the work “moves” you!
