I have had cause in recent months to reflect on the resilience of the human spirit in the face of unexpected odds.  Creating two barkcloth paintings called "Life is For Living I & II" was part of that process:

A random quote caught my eye during the time I was mulling over this project.  " Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass.  It's about learning to dance in the rain!"

These paintings evolved with that thought in mind.  They focus on the joie de vivre that is a special part of  the Fijian experience of life. This includes the ability to live fully in the moment, to celebrate with no holds barred in childlike-merriment;  a spirit of exuberance that is often missing from the fast-paced life of urban worlds elsewhere... even when the chips are down!

 "Life Is For Living I & II" are currently for sale from our studio in Nadi, Fiji.  External dimensions of frames are 61 x 61 cm. (Can be shipped unframed if you are based outside of Fiji).  Contact us for further details:


  1. You are quite talented. Are there any US art galleries carrying your work?


  2. Thanks laminar_flow, there are a good number of Americans among our art clients, but currently no on-going arrangements with galleries - we will be exploring that soon!

  3. I seriously recommend galleries in Carmel, California.
