...

I grew up surrounded by paintings, and while not a visual artist myself have always been inspired by them - particularly those of my mother and grandfather, both also pianists themselves. These are excerpts from a longer album still in production, intended to show the character and atmosphere of the full-length work.

This album is a way of expressing in my own way – improvisational piano sketches – how the remarkable environment of music and art I was fortunate enough to grow up in has formed me and my creative voice over the years. Responding to the paintings, to the piano, to my immediate and extended family and the amazing, warm, supportive, creative environment that has surrounded and nurtured me all my life.

Recorded in my parents’ country home in Nova Scotia, on a summer visit surrounded by family, on the old Heintzmann that I grew up and learned to play on, as my mother and grandfather did before me...
