What drives the artist?
“My art is about conveying the essence of Hawaii that often goes unnoticed. Amid the bright plumeria, ginger and plethora of imported plants, the more modest ‘ohi’a, wiliwili and koa don’t always command admiration. Native birds, like the ‘i’iwi and apapane are often out of sight in their shrinking territories higher on the mountain, and hence, out of mind. It’s my passion and job description to notice, learn and share about these important species. I work with botanists and conservation organizations to educate people through my art and to raise funds for these endangered species.
I instantly knew I found my calling in life when I took a woodcut printmaking class 20 years ago. Over time, my passion for printmaking and my dedication to the environment came together as a way to express the beauty of Hawaii.”
