Musician Drawings

After spending several years out of art school as a classically-trained portrait artist, my attention turned toward the musicians whom I spent so much of my life with.  I discovered that in drawing live musicians, a kind of fabulous collaboration takes place: the musician creates a physical space with their music, and I create their likeness while existing within that temporary environment.  


What they create in their music has the unique ability to envelop me as both the listener and artist.  In that strange way, I am able to study and depict my subject's outward features while existing in a place that has come from within my subject.
