About me
How did I get here

I am a mixed media artist who enjoys drawing, painting, installation, and working with digital software. I was born and raised in Hawaii and have studied Graphic Design, Fine Arts, and Art Museum Studies.  I received my BA in Art from University of Hawaii at Hilo and my MFA in Fine Arts from Claremont Graduate University. I teach digital media and fine art courses at University of Hawaii at Hilo, Hawaii Community College & California Baptist University.

What inspires me

God's blessings of my Ohana, "family." 
My greatest inspiration comes from my daughter Katana, who has been a heavenly gift in my life. She is my rock and has always made me a proud mom.
