Oil on Wooden Panel

This painting comes from a collection I started 27 years ago when visiting Hawaiʻi for the last time. The next time I travelled here, it became my permanent home. I returned to Washington, D.C., inspired to create authentic images of Hawai‘i, to learn and celebrate the ancient stories and poetry of Hawai’i, and to explore my own family genealogy and Hawaiian identity.
