How It All Started
I began cross stitching in 1979. After mastering the basics of cross stitch and while studying art at the University of Hawaii, I began to design my own patterns. Surrounded by the natural and cultural beauty of the Islands, Hawaiian themes easily became the subjects of my work. When friends and coworkers began telling me they would purchase my designs if available in print, I decided to publish a few patterns and evaluate the response. Well, the response was wonderful and the rest, as they say, is history.
All of my patterns have a color cover, contain one or more graphs, and include a written narrative about the design subject(s). If you have ever been to Hawaii, I hope these designs will bring back fond memories for you. If you haven't yet visited the Hawaiian Islands, Perhaps these designs will give you a glimpse into the history of Hawaii and of the cultural and natural beauty that is so abundant here.
I hope you enjoy my designs. I have enjoyed creating them for you.
