Painting On Kaua`i
I am a fine art painter, a yoga instructor, and a massage therapist. When I want to know more about a practice, I try to go as close to the source as possible. I moved to Hawaii 7 years ago to learn about Lomi Lomi: the art of healing touch, and I hold a BFA in Printmaking from Kent State University in Northeast Ohio.
I love working in acrylic for its simplicity and versatility. Kauai has been an inspiration to use bold colors, and the landscapes are a perfect resource for practicing En Plein Air.
Throughout my art career, I have lived and worked in different cities including San Francisco, CA, Larchmont, NY, and Pittsburgh, PA.
When I paint on canvas, the image comes to life through the process of layering.
Through the lens of my personal experiences, I seek to share images that are not only thought provoking, but expansive in a way that the viewer's own creativity is stimulated.
My art is for sale and I'm happy to offer prints of the paintings.
