1. How and when you first met Harry Roseman - I met Harry when he first wrote to me following my performance of a solo viola piece at Modfest. He proposed we meet and possibly do a project together (which we did).


2. A statement about your work and/or a brief autobiographical statement. – This can be quite brief (but doesn’t have to be).

My work:  is a constant evolution. I allow the music to inform me about its manifestation andits becoming.  – It is in this way that I strive to hear where it has come from and where it needs to go. I encounter my work in a dialogue with it as it takes on a life of it’s own. During the act of creating, I allow (or challenge) myself to go into the unknown–to a place I have never been before musically, artistically, emotionally, intellectually and psychologically.  It is only then that my work can come from a pure source. This way the music is always fresh, always being fed by inspiration and always coming from a place of authenticity.

(I absolutely love and share the belief in Catherine Murphy’s statement  ”I allow myself to be redefined as an artist with each new work”…)

(Autobiographical statement: As in my artwork, — also true in my life…which is a constant evolution, a venturing into the unknown.)

Life provides an opportunity to perceive from many vantage points, to reflect back, to respond and express –(but also to love, to dance and celebrate life wherever possible).

As an eternal optimist and idealist, I do not let myself be defined by external preconceptions nor by previous work.  And I never give up.
