"I am a Native Hawaiian artist with a diverse background, having grown up in Singapore and California. I graduated from the University of Hawaii with a degree in Marketing and now combine my passion for art with my business acumen.
My unique artistic style blends elements of pop art and realism, reflecting my fascination with interpreting and expressing pop culture in a creative and visually striking way.
As an artist, I am deeply connected to my Hawaiian roots and seek to incorporate them into my work whenever possible. Through my art, I hope to honor my cultural heritage and inspire others to appreciate the richness and diversity of Hawaiian culture.
Drawing inspiration from the concepts of life and spiritualism, I love to paint proteas because they maintain their shape even as they dry. What fascinates me is how the flower's beauty is preserved in both life and death. This duality draws me to explore different themes in my artwork, most of which are based on spiritualism or the human perspective.
I enjoy conveying these complex ideas through my paintings and interpreting the events of my life in new and creative ways. By seeing things from different viewpoints, I am able to push my own personal boundaries and challenge myself to create art that is both beautiful and thought-provoking.
Through my art, I invite viewers to consider the complexities of life and death and to reflect on the deeper spiritual meaning behind our existence. My passion for exploring the duality of existence and my fascination with the protea have resulted in a body of work that represents the beauty and mystery of life itself."
