In both art and music, I have always been drawn to the realism of the great masters like Bach, Mozart, Leonardo de Vinci, and Michelangelo, and the color, light, and texture of the great impressionists such as Debussy, Ravel, Renoir, Monet, and Degas. Vocally, I love the nuances and fluidity of mid-century popular music like that of Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, and the classy coolness, of Edith Piaf, Frank Sinatra, and Rosemary Clooney. My childhood roots in the charm and romance of Southern aesthetics and the abundance of rain and water in the Pacific Northwest, in my adult life, have influenced my narrative watercolor paintings, travel sketchbooks, and my mid-century vocal stylizations. In art and singing, I strive to capture the impression of a feeling, and the essence of time and place.
My rate is $150 per hour for performance time. I am flexible and can do as short a performance as 30 minutes, up to 2 hours with two 15 minute breaks, if I include my set of Christmas holiday music. Please contact me on my Contact page to discuss the details of your event.
