I was born and raised in Aiea, along the shores of Pearl Harbor. It all started in my early scribbling days. I’ve taken various paths since then and I recently reconnected with my love for painting landscapes on location. I have been painting under the guidance of local artist, Mark Brown, for several years now. In addition to Plein Air Painters of Hawaii, I’m also a member of the Windward Artists Guild, and the Association of Hawaii Artists. Whether at the beach, in the mountains, or in the heart of downtown, there is always wonderful light and life to be celebrated in Hawaii. Expressing this in my artwork is my goal, challenge, and joy.
