My greatest inspiration is that I am able to share my knowledge through painting. I grew up heavily immersed in the Hawaiian culture and each day I find things worth sharing, worth discussing, and worth preserving. For me, there is great fulfillment in being able to convey the spirit of a person or helping to tell a little of their story. I focus primarily on figures because I find that with people, there is so much to say. I am incredibly grateful for my skill so that I many be instrumental in our dynamic future as a supportive community here in Hawaii.
