I have lived in Hawaii for over 30 years, designing and creating hand painted silks for most of that time.

After closing my silks studio I wanted a more portable art form, since travel had become a major part of my life. An obvious choice was photography.

I can see the influence of the silk painting in my work; composition and design play a part in the whole image. Color and light are with us all the time, but there is a thrill for me in accenting that. Along with design, that emerges as a focal point.

All of life is exciting to me, and I want to share that in my photos.
