March 17, 2006
You have to really be in the mood for a long drive to get across Mana Road.

It is about a six hour drive to travel the road and make a circle back to Kona.

I feel that Hawaii is another garden of Eden. The Hawaiian people have been blessed. As a non native Hawaiian I feel privileged to paint one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Everything in Hawaii is sacred to the Hawaiian people. I believe if I am given the opportunity to live in such a beautiful place I need to give something back. I attempt to give back to Hawaii by painting all of its beauty.

I try to capture present and past memories forever on canvas.  I don't want to take anything from Hawaii, it has already given me so much.

Aloha to Hawaii and all its wonderful people.
