About the event

Expressions of the Blues is a collection of painted portraits of Blues, R&B, Soul and Gospel musicians. The artists I’ve chosen to paint are people whose music and story truly inspire me. I have seen many of them perform which has given me the opportunity to photograph and video them. I have been lucky to share conversations, friendships and a common love for the Blues with some of these artists on a personal level. I am trying to create an emotion in these paintings. I want the audience to really get the feel of the artist in the piece through the brush strokes, color, expressions in their eyes or on their faces.
