“Since the age of nine, art has been my passion: my personal statement defining the essence of self. A lifetime devoted to the creative process, I’ve had fortunate opportunity, freedom and mentorship to explore various form and presentation. From paint to pastels, jewelry making and woodwork, glass and pottery to photography and film making, it’s been an all-encompassing pursuit that eventually lured me into the realm of mixed media. As an artist, it’s exhilarating to have free abstract manifestation that comes without boundaries or rules. And now as gallery owner where that expression can be displayed, I feel my journey has come full circle.
“Geckos in Paradise”
One of fifty resident artist designs selected, it was an honor to participate in a fundraiser event for the Breast Cancer Center of Hawaii at Kapiolani Hospital where 5’x3’ fiberglass geckos were individually painted to represent various “local” themes. Then after a period of public awareness, pieces were auctioned off with all proceeds going to the Cancer Center.

As part of a quartet assembled to represent different processes in art method, I was asked to embody landscape on canvas in acrylic media. Educational in focus, the production’s intent was to encourage student exploration into the world of creativity.
