The vibrant colors here on the Big Island and the very intriguing ways they are captured by the light are my inspiration. In addition, there are few things more rewarding than creating something to be enjoyed by others. That inspires me as well.
Our gallery is also my studio, which makes for a more interactive experience for those who come to watch me paint. Working with oils, I paint landscapes of local scenes, some marine life, floral studies, and an occasional departure to a more stylized nostalgic scene. Continually evolving and growing in new directions is important to me.
For the last three years I have, for the first time in my life, become a full time artist. It is something I have dreamed about doing for a very long time and I am very glad I made the decision to do it.
