I majored in ceramics at the University of Hawaii but my mercurial nature and curiosity has led me into the world of watercolor, oils, acrylics and collage. Art is a spiritual action: it brings me home to my self. Time stops and I forget about the outside world. I know of no better meditation than being creative.
My work has been shown at Featherstone Center for the Arts, Dragonfly Gallery, All Island Art Show in Oak Bluffs, The West Chop Beach Club, The Wooden Tent Gallery in Tisbury, Planned Parenthood Show, Honolulu Academy of Arts, and others.
