Malo e lelei! Aloha! Bula Vinaka! Aloha! Talofa! These are one of the many warm greetings from the South Pacific. Being of Polynesian decent, my art is a reflection of my culture in many ways. My art was developed through school, and my Polynesian upbringing. The artists that influence my art are Leonardo da Vinci, Paul Gaughin, and Salvador Dali. My art nowadays are from the best of both worlds: art & technology. I enjoy experimenting with different styles and mediums in my art. There are a combination of influences that are focused in my art: my Polynesian heritage, religious upbringing, and the importance of family. These themes play an integral role because they have been very positive and strong influences in my life. One of my recent works called 'An Artist Is Born' was featured in the Art Takes Time Square Exhibit on June 18th in New York.
