The Artist about himself

I am a local boy who was born and raised in Kapahulu. After going to college and working in California, I returned home to get married and raise a family. After sending our two kids to college, I found I had more free time on my hands to fulfill my artistic desires.


One of the things that really piqued my interest actually came from a demonstration of wood turning at Nohea Gallery when it was located in Ward Warehouse. But it wasn’t until 2020 when I finally bought my lathe and began turning.


Although I’m relatively new to the craft, I am a passionate wood turner who loves to turn mostly bowls. I truly enjoy discovering the secrets within each piece of timber that makes each piece one of a kind. I let the wood dictate the overall shape and size while I focus on bringing out the natural beauty.

Cook Pine

The Cook Pine is ypically planted as an ornamental and street tree in warm temperate climates. This is the only widely grown conifer in the Pacific Islands. Individuals always lean wherever they are planted. In the Northern Hemisphere they lean south and in the Southern Hemisphere they lean north. In Hawai‘i, Cook pines lean five to seven degrees southeast, on average.

More than 2 million board feet of Cook pine have been harvested from Hawaii and Maui. The wood is strong but light in weight. It is usually quite knotty and is used as a knotty pine paneling, turned bowls and bracelets. It has also been made into a veneer.
