Artist Statement

I paint about things that are happening in my life, whether it be a beautiful garden growing   lush by the day, here in Hawaii or a dip in the ocean where, for a moment, I feel like a mermaid. Sometimes it is a story I saw on the news or a piece about global warming.

I take these experiences and make visual expressions of the feelings they convey in me. Each piece Is a colorful journey into my imagination where I attempt to extract impressions, like the fleeting images that emerge while slowly awakening from a dream.
