Big Island Adventure
So you’ve asked me what to do/eat/stay when you come visit the Big Island of Hawaii. This is my attempt to highlight my recommendations in a catchall blog post:
Solo Exhibition Hawaii
Announcing my first solo exhibition in Hawaii on Saturday, July 8 at PORTAL Art Gallery in Pahoa! The Big Island influences my work in a major way. Namely, in order to achieve my surface textures, I use elements from my environment including: earth, rain water, black, white and green sand, plaster, concrete, coconut fronds and rusted metal, just to name a few. Mostly though, I find that it's the intense energy felt here on the island (as a result of the constant volcanic eruptions), as well as the rich contrast in the Hawaiian landscape that influence my work the most.
This blog was created to share my belief that the art-making process is a catalyst for transformation and personal empowerment. I am living proof.
