Inspired by Music

creativity kree-ey-tiv-i-tee n : the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.; originality, progressiveness, or imagination.

When I think about who I am as an artist and what really moves me, I usually find myself lost in a song.  Music has been called by poets and philosphers “the language of the soul.”  When words fail us, melodies often find a way to reach deeper, to make connections and bring us together.  It still amazes me how a string of notes can instantly take me to a different place–a place where I can slow down and breathe, see a life little clearer and discover a new world of beauty in my midst. Music gives me space to ignite my imagination and fill my heart so full I feel an overwhelming drive to share it with another person.
