I’ve found incredible inspiration exploring the widely ranging cultures I have lived in from: Kota Kinabalu on the island of Borneo to Beijing, China, Manila, Philippines, Whistler, Canada, and Hood River, Oregon.
Since my first international solo show in Manila, Philippines in 2000, I have participated in over 60 group and solo shows in the Pacific Northwest. My paintings are known for imaginative story telling of the soulful journey we are on incorporating people and wildlife as subjects in a unique blend of realism and abstraction.
In 2013, I designed an art program titled, “Brave Art for Youth”and published the program’s accompanying workbook journal for teaching art and mindfulness to middle school students in Canada, Washington and Oregon where I am presently head of the fine art department at Wildwood Academy.
My murals, reflecting Hood River’s local culture and heritage are on permanent display at the Hood River Museum of History and Henkle Middle School in White Salmon.
My work is on display year round at the Hood River Artist collective at “301 Art Gallery” where I love connecting with collectors and the art loving community of my fellow artists.
