I enjoy writing songs about love and loss. They are two of the most common human experiences. They remind us of our humanity and connection to one another and the world. I am interested in the story. When I choose a song to sing I look closely at the lyrics to see if it is a story I can really tell. When I create one of my abstract paintings, my hope is that people will look and find something that resonates with their own story in my art. I am inspired by the beauty I see around me in the world and in others.
