In the winter of 2005 I wrote my first full length harp composition - Passage.  It was later chosen for performance at the Sonic Boom festival of new music in Vancouver.  I've done a 2-part in-depth look at Passage as part of my Harp Tuesday YouTube series, along with a music video.

In 2007 I finished and premiered Rhapsody, another work for solo harp.  Rhapsody was also later chosen to be performed at Sonic Boom.

In 2012 I wrote a piece for harp and double bass called Cotton Butterfly that I also later adapted for cello.

More recent compositions include Poem for solo harp, Autumn Labyrinth, and Forgotten Summer.

My 2013 CD Passage: music for solo harp includes three of my compositions (Passage, Rhapsody, and Poem for solo harp).

I often think of composing as being somewhat akin to painting - splashing different musical colours around (what fun!).  I'm particularly drawn to exploring harmonic structure. 

You can currently buy the sheet music to many of my compositions at my online store.
