The defining element of my artwork is color. I love brilliant, vibrant colors and their relationships to each other.
In a contemporary, Pop Art style my paintings appropriate and juxtapose imagery and ideas from the American culture. They are often parodies depicting scenes that can be suggestive, ambiguous, or disconcerting. The viewer creates the meaning based upon their unique world/societal perspective.
Since receiving a BA in Art from the University of Hawaii-Hilo, my artwork has been exhibited in numerous solo and group shows in the United States; Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Paris, France; London, England; and is in private collections in 45 states and 13 countries.
Favorite mediums are oil, acrylic, watercolor pencil, and ink.
