The world immediately around me is a stunning place to explore with
wonder and awe.  There is another amazing world immediately and deeply
within me that I find amazing to explore as well, which I consider my
inner world.  I enjoy exploring both of these worlds visually with
photos, drawings, paintings and mixed media as well as with words.  In
some of my explorations I include both worlds in one piece.  In other
explorations my focus is predominantly on one or the other of these
two worlds.

My art is personal.  My intention is to bring the experience and
knowledge that is individually mine into my explorations.  This helps
to make my explorations unique.  The action of this exploration is
what I call my art.  For me this action is a personal searching.  The
works that result from this action of searching, which is sometimes
referred to as creativity, are points along my journey of life.  One
of the reasons I create these points is my intention to share my
exploring with other beings.  The interaction created by that sharing
is also an element of the search.

Wherever we are we have the ability to search.  Life is searching.
Currently I live and search from Hawaii.
