For me, creating art is my language of response. For example, observe my response to seeing the taro fields of Hanalei, as I explore new visions, colors and reflections using varied mediums and surfaces. This is where each journey begins. Sometimes it inspires another thought or even a new direction—such as a painting using the same color combination, but with a completely different subject and new materials. Kauai provides an endless number of these inspirational starting places. Another source of inspiration is studying the Masters. Nothing replaces a visit to an art museum to look at original paintings. Vermeer, Rembrandt and Rousseau are three of my favorites.
