I am a musician and, apparently, now an artist! Who knew! Primarily a guitarist and singer, I am fortunate to work with some of the greatest jazz players on the planet. My original music is available on all streaming services under my full name Gary Dean Smith. Writing and recording have always been a big part of my life. My friend and mentor, jazz guitarist Joe Diorio, encouraged me years ago to do visual arts, painting, pottery, etc.
Anything that opens the mind, heart and soul up to new sights and sounds. After all these years it has all clicked and it seems the boundaries between the art disciplines have blurred for me. I now see and hear things in multiple dimensions, just as Joe said it would. He also said it would take years before this intuitive freedom developed enough so that I could create freely without consulting the "Rule Book". You will see humor and beauty in my work. Possiblysimultaneously now and then!I am glad to be here! GDS.
