My Jazz Story

Jazz was a medium I never understood as a child, but was immersed in at the time (1960's). Upon the passing of my mother, I began to listen to jazz samba as a way to remember her -- that spawned exploration into depicting jazz-themed paintings in my work as an artist. Today, jazz music continues to dominate my work and resonate with collectors world-wide.
