John finds joy and solace in expressing his love for Hawaii,
its people and its culture through his paintings.
Painting enables me to appreciate life and express my feelings through paintings rather than words. It is an outlet I can plug into, and always feel good after I do it. I feel really blessed to have this in my life.
