Solo exhibition starts January 9 – and with a virtual opening too!


The Volcano Art Center’s solo exhibition of my oil paintings, A Brush With Light – Volcanic Island Reflections, opens at the their gallery in Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park on January 9 and runs through February 14.

Gallery hours are Thursday – Sunday, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.



For those unable to visit the show in person, we’re holding a virtual opening on January 9th at 11 a.m. (HST) for art lovers near and far. I’ll briefly introduce the paintings, say a few words about my process and the places rendered in the works, leaving ample time for comments and questions from the virtual participants . . . just like at live openings.


To register for the Zoom link, please contact by January 6.

I’ve been developing this body of work for many months now, with lots of field work atop the volcanoes, in the rainforest and along the coast. I hope you’ll find these paintings offer a different perspective on Hawaiʻi Island’s extraordinary landscapes, including Kilauea before and after the 2018 eruption, the high mountains of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, and the island’s rugged coastline and exceptional plant life.

Please join us for the virtual opening, or if you live in the islands, come see the works in person! For more information, visit the Art Center’s current exhibition page and scroll down to the show.
