"I really don’t know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea...it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have, in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea – whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came." JFK  

     Growing up, life in our small beach town was slow and wonderful, and filled with endless beach days, sandy toes, and lots of sunburns. Like many children of Hawai'i, my siblings and I could swim like the fish and stand up on a surf board before we could spell our own names. Days well spent were ones in the ocean, and we made most of our family memories in the sea. Whether we were surfing, fishing, or hunting for seashells on the shoreline, the ocean was our sacred place. 

The ocean, and the culture of being a sea-faring people is what inspires me most, artistically. Hawai'i is a unique place to call home, and I am so fortunate to live and play alongside these shores.
