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 the 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.
