Artist Statement: I’m an abstract artist, and much of my work has morphed into a “fluid art” style. Most recently, I’ve been designing items to decorate homes – such as serving trays, coasters, tables, and wall art. The idea of painting a piano at first seemed impossible with my style, but I was inspired to apply anyway – using one of my “fluid art” designs from a previous set of coasters I designed. I wondered how would I be able to control the very liquidy consistency of paint without destroying a piano. After submitting my template design to Sing for Hope, we set up a call to discuss the logistics of executing the style. I imagined the project would take a couple of days to complete, and to my surprise – the sanding, priming, painting, and designing of the piano stretched into six days, reaching approximately 30 working hours. It was one of my most amazing painting experiences to date!
