“I am a self-taught painter. I arrived on the Big Island in 1984, and fell in love with the peace and beauty that surrounded me. One creature in particular has captivated my energy and soul. The green sea turtle has been the subject of many of my watercolor pieces. I have been often told that my artwork is a vehicle to preserve and save the green turtle from extinction. I am grateful to each collector of my artwork because they are all the source and inspiration that allows me to keep painting.”
