Am so deeply humbled & honored to have my work ‘Through the Tears…Aloha’ for inclusion in the Imago Mundi Luciano Benetton collection. The work can be seen in the new book ‘Aloha Spirit Contemporary Artists from Hawaii’ published in Italy.
Thank you to Luciano Benetton and Jennifer Karch Verze for providing this platform to bring the spirit of Hawaii’s artists to the world. David Behlke and Gigi Manawis were so instrumental to making this project a reality.
I want to give a very special mahalo to Dennis, Auntie Momi Lum and Wendy Burbridge, my Hawaiians that I love so deeply who bring bring the spirit of Hawaii & the na’ao to life in teaching and leading by example. Their Hawaiian spirit within them burns bright.
And congratulations to all the artists whose work made this collection so special. Most of all a deep aloha to Dennis & all who have supported and guided me through the journey.
