I love the tropics! I was born in Thailand and lived in Asia ,and Hawai'i before settling in California. I really love island cultures, especially Hawai'i. I love the light, the smells, the colors, and the sense of space. I love the regal polynesian faces and the "in your face" colors of the flowers and the water. I truly love the light on the ocean when it's reflecting off a moody sky and the flash of dolphins and fish through the water. Those who have been, usually know what I mean, and those who are from, always have the islands in their hearts.
These paintings express my love for Hawaii and Polynesia and the places and people I've met there.
