Painted Music Project


A little background about the project.

It is a project that began in 2005. The first paintings were an interpretation of the legendary jazz great, Miles Davis. Using his music to inspire all the paintings as a group but not specifically any one painting. Then in 2008/2009 I revisited the project creating a second edition of painted music with Miles Davis music as my muse. This time each painting was inspired by a specific song with each canvas titled after the song that inspired it.

Now in 2018 I am once again inspired to revisited the Painted Music Project.

This collection of paintings is inspired by Chesney Henry”Chet” Baker Jr. an American jazz trumpeter and vocalist. I’m excited to revisit this project as a “matured painter” meaning my style has evolved over the years and I intuit-interpret my world differently then I did 13 yrs ago.  I’ll post paintings as they are completed and I hope you will follow along and share with friends. The completed collection of new paintings will be available at my studio gallery in December 2018. If you would like to receive updates regarding this project send an email to and add Painted Music Project in the subject line to be added to my mailings.
