"Windward Skies II" is a dreamy view of the landscape in Ka'a'awa Beach on the eastern side of the island of O'ahu. It was inspired by my countless trips driving to the north shore and feeling awed by the incredible scenery along the way.

I love looking up at the mountains reflecting sunlight, and breathing the salty air that blows onshore with the trade winds.  I was moved to paint this vantage point several years ago with my first painting "Windward Skies", and had been...

Rikka Femme x Murasaki Sports

One of my favorite recent collaborations has been with Japanese surf brand, Rikka Femme, whose parent company Murasaki Sports created two lines of artwork surfboards with my designs.  The first round featured my "Botanical" artwork on the tail and underside of the nose on a limited edition (of 100) 7'2" fun board shaped in Japan.  Next they came out with soft tops in two colors featuring my "Paradise" artwork on the underside of the nose in similar dimensions as the previous board.  I have been enjoying riding the limited edition board for quite some time now. It always feels exciting to be...
