About Me

Art or Music? Music  or  Art? 

My relationship with art and music reaches back to childhood. At age six I began formal piano studies in classical music. BUT– drawing fascinated me.Growing up, I spent hours , designing fancy houses, as in a 9 year-olds design conception. I filled-up many sketchbooks with some good drawings, some not so great, and some throw away awful.

  • Piano practice demanded more hours for national competitions and recitals.
  • Played do I want music or art ping-pong.
  • Mastering Grieg’s  entire Piano Concerto in A Minor seemed to set me on a path to a future as a concert pianist,
  • BUT I wanted a family and life played out on a many stages seemed a solitary life-or so I thought.
  • I  began to study art  seriously… fine art-drawing and painting
  • I could not pursue art and leave music behind or vice versa.
  • I chose in both disciplines. Happy!
