I fell in love with unusual architecture as a child, when I spent the summer at the Onion House with my 'wild woman' relative, Auntie Dofeen. Difficult circumstances later on gave me the opportunity to purchase and renovate the Onion House, part of my family’s legacy, which has become a widely acclaimed example of Organic Architecture. My artwork, which grew alongside the renovation of the Onion House, has been collected internationally, and ranges from the brilliant natural colors of feathered masks and shields, to landscapes and figures rendered in pastels and oils. My artwork has been shown in over 90 galleries nationwide, and my work is in many private collections, including the Michael Rosenberg Collection in London, and the Chris Hemmeter Collection in Hawaii. I am a founding member of the Permaculture Foundation of Hawaii, with the goal of sustainability of the natural world.
