Listening for ideas and responding in Color

I was made in Hawaii and raised on the Chesapeake Bay and Oahu. My connections to water, light and color deeply influence my work. Also, A big chunk of my being is music. A typical 70's kid with a passion for Hendrix and the electric guitar brought me to Berklee College of Music. There I realized that I don't listen to music as much as I see it. It’s physical to me. I spent my early professional life as a stair builder and carpenter. Ultimately, holding something I made is why I fell in love with carpentry. These life experiences fuse together in my art. As an Artist I look for ways to interact with experiences that I find compelling. I love music and I love art and I want to be in it. I want to participate with all that great work out there. What I’d really like to do, is swim, float and live inside color and sound. I suppose we already live there sometimes. I just want to keep that going.
