She Pulls me Deeper - 2019
This piece was inspired by Kimi Werner a true waterwoman and inspirational being!! I first learned of Kimi from the documentary Fishpeople. I’ve followed her story ever since and was truly blown away by her most recent podcast on The Waterpeople Podcast
Kimi’s story has inspired me to feel more in the ocean and concentrate more on my connection while in the water. She talks in Fishpeople when she free dives, as she gets deeper and when the buoyancy becomes negatively buoyant, at first it’s scary, but the more you surrender the more you feel like you’re being pulled home.
For me this means the things we fear or the things that sometimes bring darkness to us, if we embrace them and stay calm, they will take us to where we need to go. Kimi’s connection with the ocean, in a simple and profound way, has inspired me to grow. Much love and aloha to Kimi.

From Sketches, We Grow…
As I was moving into my new studio space a few months back, Marshall found all of my sketch pads from the past 7 years. Filled with original works, that I never sold or even thought to do anything with. Maybe some of it was having trouble letting go, some was filled with doubt that anyone would value the original work with all the pencil marks and blemishes; but as I really looked through each piece, each one tells its own story, and has so much meaning behind it.
As you grow and move through life, you understand more that any good or anything you gain positive most likely comes from the imperfections and the blemishes. So, in this chapter of my life, I am very proud to release this collection of artwork.
This collection not only showcases my work over the past 7 years, it showcases my personal journey, my growth, it showcases a chapter of my life.
