Genres

Classical, Contemporary, Improvisation

Other genre

As a composer, I have a passion for creating music.  Varied in style, my pieces are inspired by nature, art and the richness of life, taking the listener to heartfelt places.  I particularly enjoy creating commissioned pieces, beautifully capturing the essence of the brief.  I have performed my compositions and improv pieces for events at various locations, such as art galleries and health & wellness businesses.  My first CD – Water’s Edge – is a compilation of personal life stories portrayed through solo piano music.  Currently, I am working my next CD – JOURNEY HOME, to be released later in 2016.
