I have always had a fascination with the synesthesia of music and visual art. Although I am not a
musician myself, I have such a high regard for what musicians can do and how they can change the way
a person feels. As a visual artist, I try to relate other artistic experiences back to what I understand; the
visual. I started exploring the idea of synesthesia with my art students and continued this exploration in
my own paintings. I would listen to a song with my eyes closed and “visualize the music.” I would then
play the song again while I painted my reaction to what I was hearing. Different songs evoke different
colors, textures and images. Vibrations is a series of work inspired by the complex relationship of sound,
color and vibration.
