I was born in Hawaii and have also lived in Florida. In my life and work, I have been inspired by different cultural influences from the shores of Hawaii to the East Coast as well as internationally. My body of contemporary and abstract fine art includes sculpture and other three-dimensional works in the functional and non-functional, as well as representational and non-representational categories. My techniques include pit firing, contemporary raku and high fired stoneware.
