Dancing Soul

Dancing Soul

There is a deep connection between music and abstract art – and the word often applied to both is colour.

My fascination with the connection between music and colour goes back to my childhood, when I often painted for hours next to the piano while my mother, a wonderful pianist, played Mozart and Beethoven.  This is why the palette became my keyboard.

In 2010, I spent many months at Steinway & Sons in London where I transformed a concert grand piano into ‘Dancing Soul’, an abstract artwork inspired by the music and energy of Diaghilev and Les Ballets Russes.
