The symbol of an unfurling fern represents new beginnings (or a fresh start), tranquility and spirituality. It has become my favorite symbol, even to the point of incorporating the Uluhe fern into my artist signature. And butterflies, what better symbol of tranquility and transformation. This 2020 painting is what I wish for our world. Both the Uluhe fern and the Hawaiian Blue butterfly are endemic to Hawaii.
As a resident of Hawaii island I am inspired by the islands' natural beauty on a daily basis. As an artist it is my passion to paint visual stories of that beauty and the resulting peace and joy I find here. I hope my work will inspire these in you as well.
The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders;
where morning dawns, where evening fades,
you call forth songs of joy. Psalm 65:8
