Growing up in Hawaii, I absorbed the tastes and cultures of the Islands. My father, a photographer, also blessed me with an artistic eye for exotic colors and shapes. In 1991 I came to Oregon; my unique handsewn cotton Japanese and Hawaiian print Happi Coats and Kimonos, hand-painted silk scarves and wall hangings can be found at select art venues throughout the state. I'm often commissioned to create custom pieces to wear or to decorate the home or office.
