“I have devoted my life to composing and
playing music. I have played cello with Dave Brubeck for the Shreveport Symphony
and rock and roll piano with Bo Diddley.I love music.Music can touch your
soul and soothe your heart.It can also
be frustrating. Consisting of nothing more than air pressure, music ceases to exist
the moment you stop playing.Over the
past decade along with music I have enjoyed the comfort of creating art which
is tangible, primarily in the mediums of photography, clay and leather.” –Chris
