A move to Hawaii in 2004 brought me akin to the tropical colors, living textures, and culture that are the spirit of these Pacific Islands. Nature is a bountiful resource of inspiration to my work with its never ending supply of compositions to consider. Often feeling the role of a huntress, I’m out stalking the form, attempting to capture a pose, camera in tow. Flowers always attend the dance of Hawaii; their language amplified by their enchanting essence. I love their gift of healing and joy, and in my creative mode, delight in their expressions staring back at me. I take images and interpret them as my designs unfold. I find the contrast, contrast of land and ocean under quickly shifting clouds and light, illuminating shapes, color, and form, providing constant visual stimulation over the marriage of land and sea.
