A Hawaii born illustrator, moved to Oregon, loves whimsical art.
I love painting and experimenting new styles, but my paintings always feature parts of Japanese culture. Like my paintings, how much of the culture varies. Sometimes it's just the flowers that are popular in Japanese motifs, geishas, or patterns seen in Japanese prints.
I find myself inspired a lot by Miyazaki works, they are wonderfully whimsical. The whimsical I find from his films makes me think and create other fun feeling art that hints at playful and a bit thoughtful.
