I am inspired by the elements, the winds and rain. I am inspired by nature, and the vivid colors of our natural world. My art reflects who I am, a strong Hawaiian proud of my heritage. Inspired by the stories of my people I am moved and inspired to create functional pieces of art used to rekindle dormant flames within oneself, enlightened by its splendor, the eyes of the beholder. As an artist I strive to super secede those before me by continuing their legacy while creating one of my own. I have learned to be adaptable in these evolving times, being able to walk in the footsteps of my ancestors in this ever-changing world.
