I started drawing as early as the first grade. In school I would doodle while the teacher was talking, I joke that I was an art major during math class. Took art classes in HS and Majored (for real) in art in college .I worked for an art museum in Honolulu for 20 years and took advantage of art classes that they offered. I studied painting, figure drawing and portrait. My art reflects a love of nature, creation and expression of peace and beauty , something I feel that is needed in our troubled world.
