Sudden Paintings & Music from the Brain's Hidden Universe


My sudden artistic eruption in 2013 – the first in July and the second in October - unleashed mysterious new abilities to instantaneously paint and play the piano.

By autumn, 2014, I had erupted 170 original acrylic on canvas paintings and more than 50 original piano compositions.

I have no previous study or training whatsoever in painting or the piano and before my sudden eruption had zero interest in either.

Erupting as a sudden artist revealed that I know things I have never learned about painting and the piano.

My paintings continue to flow forth effortlessly and have rapidly evolved into three distinct series.

Each piece of spontaneous music comes only once, so I record it live as I play and release it just as it is.


My infrequent email newsletter hopes to give you deeper insight into aspects of the mystery.

I would like my personal stories to inspire you in your own creative journey.

Most of us already have far too much going on, and one more email sign-up adds to the daily noise.

So I promise you that I will only rarely send out emails and, because I respect your privacy, will never share your email address.

Please do consider signing up, however, because email is still one of the best ways we all have to stay connected and share who we are across the distances.

May my email newsletter, when it occasionally erupts, be a timely and welcome flow in your life.
