Following a family passion for artistic expression combined with the pursuit of professional work, Augusta Gross maintained a clinical psychologist practice while developing her artistic and musical endeavors.
A pianist at an early age, she returned to the keyboard in 2001. She has been composing music ever since. She also began drawing with increased frequency alongside her composing.
Both Augusta Gross’s musical compositions and artwork focus on internally felt experiences in a spare yet incisive way. Her music evokes complex emotional meaning using relatively elemental lyrical lines and subtle harmonies. Her drawings are rendered in sketches whose small details amplify humor and pathos.
