Born and raised in Kailua, Hawai'i. The beach and ocean are my playground.
Traveling to Tahiti, American Samoa, Australia, Canada, Nepal, the Greek and Marshall Islands, and around the U.S, has given me wonderful ideas for my art. There are some amazing artists I have found in some of the smallest villages.
I never felt like I was confined to painting the grass green, the sky blue, or cows black and white. I decided, after not much pondering, that color is what makes the world go round.
l now live in Kihei, Maui. I keep busy with my paintings, competing in outrigger canoe paddling, surfing, teaching kids about art as well as how to be good human beings.
My work is found all over the U.S. as well as a few other countries. Purple coconut trees are found in Texas, hot sunny beaches are found in Canada, and tropical flowers and papayas are found in Tennessee and North Carolina to name a few places.
Come into my world of color! There really is a world where the grass is blue, the sky yellow, and the cows just might be pink! I hope you find yourself smiling when you're looking at my art!
