Wahipana Landscapes

I want to share the experience of divine natural beauty and living aloha through my work.

I always travel with my watercolors, favorite brushes, and a sketchbook. Road trips with my husband through Europe, Southeast and East Asia, the South Pacific and my own beloved home island, Oʻahu always challenge to grow my powers of observation.

Wahi pana is a Hawaiian term for a storied place. I connect to a landscape by hearing stories about the places I visit from locals or through the experiences I make by spending time there and absorbing the light, sounds and smells of the place. Watercolor is often the best medium for me to capture these impressions.
