Product Description

Having spent so many years in the islands I have listened to and read the many myths and stories about the ever popular legends that were the beliefs of the ancient people. These legends and myths explain many of the words and customs of today’s Hawai’i.

I have always been fascinated by this subject. Through my art, I express my aloha and understanding of the Hawaiian people.

Though Kona, Hawaii is home, when I travel to other parts of the world I try to capture the beauty of other cultures in watercolors.  Look for these interpretations of places like Olympia, Greece, an eskimo village in Alaska as well as other parts of the beautiful state of Hawai’i.
