I am an acrylic painter, teacher, and lover of all things Hawaiian.
I opened Susun Gallery Artschool in Santa Cruz, California in 1987, after a career as a sign painter in the San Jose area, and as a fine art consultant in Carmel.
Susun Gallery Artschool is home to hundreds of talented art students, all learning to draw, paint and sculpt their world, their way.
I'm currently living in Hilo on Hawaii Island, sharing my art knowledge with the Big Island communities.
These new places and experiences help me to realize home is where you are. My love of art drives me to share my life with new people. By organizing class events for corporations, schools and private groups, I can do this.
Artschool on the Beach is my outdoor studio, and a fun way for locals and visitors to explore painting with great results in a short period of time. Discover your paradise while creating a personal masterpiece in Hawaii.
Come join me and let me introduce you to new art attitudes and altitudes. Explore every grain of sand, fill your paint cup from a waterfall, rub red dirt and black sand into your painting, and take divine notes from nature.
Get your feet wet, feel the aloha flow through your brush, and paint rainbows from life. Make a lasting memory,
and the one's you love.
All ages, all cultures,
e komo mai with aloha,
