Artist Statement

I spend a lot of time in both Hawaii and Japan. Much of my art is done out of doors, while directly viewing the subject.

I wish to idealize every separate island in the Pacific region, and show the local people and scenery in their native beauty. I am currently offering my art to hotels in the Pacific and Caribbean regions. I have traveled 30 countries.
