Classically trained, inspired by nature. I compose solo works, and also create my own deep, looping harmonies and meditative melodies, incorporating whalesong or birdsong. I play concert halls, yoga classes, festivals, out in nature. Celtic, jazz, tango.
During Covid lockdowns I rehearsed, recorded and edited multiscreen virtual choir and instrumental videos to gather us in community.
