I was born with the ability to hear in color, a blending of the senses called synesthesia. I use that natural ability to paint music. Although they may appear to be abstract, my paintings are grounded in my personal experience of sound. For me, music is lit up with color and full of patterns to recognize, problems to solve, and connections to make. Essentially, my paintings are a code that I use to make sense of and record what I think and experience. No matter how sophisticated a problem is or how fragile or fleeting a thing is before me, I can use my paint to comprehend it and reflect it truly.
