HAWAII

culture / attitudes

An Artist’s work often talks about his/her environment. I love living in Maui...it’s my creative source. While depicting my surroundings and experiences I try to avoid the elegant; purposely seeking some awkwardness...a little edge. No swaying palm trees, happy honu (turtle), or smiling dolphins here.

As with the rest of my work, the process is addition and subtraction. There is no carefully planned ending ...that would stifle discovery.
