I have always loved art, especially the works of Van Gogh, Cezanne, and Geogia O'Keefe.
My journeys an artist began in 2005 when I studied drawing and acrylic painting at Kaua'i Community College. I transitioned to oils in 2009. I am a member of the Kaua'i Made program and Kaua'i Society of Artists.
I enjoy the many challenges that oil painting provides and the sense of satisfaction I feel when a painting progresses toward completion. I enjoy sharing my work with others and opportunities to make new connections and friendships along the way.
Painting enriches my life by adding color and depth, much like paint transforms a waiting canvas. I am especially passionate about capturing the various birds, tropical foliage, and beautiful landscapes that abound here on Kaua'i.
The photographic prints of my original paintings are printed on Fuji crystal archive photographic paper, using archival quality ink for durability and longevity. As with any artistic work, please avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight to maintain its quality.
Thank you for your interest in my paintings and reproductions, and I am happy to be able to share Kauai's beauty with you.
