Music and antique manuscripts inspire these paintings. I improvise loosely on an ancient script called Linear B, discovered on the island of Crete. I think about conductors’ strokes as I create rhythmic passages in the wax. Antique ledgers and musical notation are the passions that propel my imagery.
