I am primarily a self-taught artist working in clay, paint, and found objects. I am influenced by the Japanese and Hawaiian culture and aesthetics of my upbringing and my work often combines natural elements with man or the man-made. Sculpture Paintings and Vessels is a series of 3D ceramic pieces designed to hang on a wall. Faces are infused with botanical elements while cityscapes are recessed into natural backgrounds. Both serve to remind us of the role nature plays in our existence.
I currently practice sculpting in my studio at Visual Philosophy Studios in San José, California. For SVOS I will be showing at an outdoor Willow
Glen site and participating in the (pandemic proof) online event on with Visual Philosophy artist community where you can see online exhibits and get to know me and other local artists through chats, Q&A, and demonstrations.
