This is the painting that started it all.

This painting of a Honu or Hawaiian sea turtle was completed in 2006 when I was only 15 years old. The piece won numerous awards in art competitions around Hawaii and received an offer from an eager buyer. However, I wasn't ready to sell my work and it remained comfortably in my home throughout the years. Now, I have finally released it for sale and also as a print reproduction. It is currently my #1 seller!


This particular Honu was seen during a trip to the island of Maui. The colors represent what I saw as Maui's rich, pristine ocean colors, and the yellowish background represents the Honu's dual territory in the ocean and on Hawaii's sandy beaches.
