I often work in collaboration with poets or musicians, which I find an inspiring part of the creative process, resulting in multi-layered interpretations for artist and viewer.
The following videos showcase aspects of these collaborations, and feature a montage of my paintings with the work of people I’ve collaborated with, including composer/cellist Atzi Muramatsu, poet J.L. Willams, author/poet Louise Palfreyman and pianist/composer Jane Gardner.
