Her works have been exhibited in Local coffee shops, Open air Art Walks, and group shows. She is resident of Maui. Her work can be found at Maui Hands Gallery.
I make art because for awhile I am transported to a fantasy world of my own creation. I've often wondered if I could be more practical, less of a dreamer. However, every time I've thought of giving away my paints it felt like I was dying. My paintings celebrate and explore humankind. My journey as an artist is inspired by the light that imbues one's life when one pursues their joy.
