My work is a fusion of paper sculpture, abstract painting, and Hawaiian culture. I am inspired by the natural beauty of Hawaii, the rich history of Polynesian culture, and the ancient art of paper-making.
I use handmade paper as my primary medium. I hand-form the paper from a variety of fibers, including kozo, hemp, and mulberry. I then sculpt the paper into three-dimensional forms, which I paint with mineral pigments. The mineral pigments give my work a rich, earthy palette that reflects the natural beauty of Hawaii.
The sculptures are often abstract, but it is always rooted in the natural world. I am interested in creating forms that suggest movement, growth, and transformation. I also use my work to explore the relationship between humans and nature.
I believe that art can be a powerful tool for connecting people with the natural world. My work is an invitation to slow down and appreciate the beauty of all that surrounds us. It is also a reminder that we are part of a larger ecosystem, and that we have a responsibility to care for our planet.
