Painting on Maui is an incredible experience. I am grateful for every moment I get to do what I love in this stunning place. The humidity extends the drying time of my paints, enabling me to manipulate the colors and shapes for much longer than I am used to. When I am finally ready to step back and place my paintings in the sun, the Lahaina heat acts like a giant blow dryer, drying my paintings at record speeds.
Everywhere I look, I am inspired by this tiny, impossible island, floating in the middle of the Pacific, brimming full of the kind of beauty I always knew existed, but never experienced until now. I enjoyed working on this commissioned painting for a client's remodel.
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.
