“We are volcanoes. When we women offer our experience as our truth, as human truth, all the maps change. There are new mountains.” - Ursula K. LeGuin


This project is a series of paintings on 16 inch by 20-inch canvas. As a group it is titled One Hundred Views of Kilauea Volcano.

Volcanic landscapes have endless views that are always different and always the same. For the past 16 years I have lived part time on the Big Island of Hawai‘i. Kilauea volcano brought me to this island, and I have spent many years hiking, walking, and painting Kilauea.

I love the shapes, colors and textures of Kilauea I love the scale and power of her. She has the ability, like artists, to create, destroy and transform. It is the connection between landscapes and culture that inspires my painting.

I have chosen to paint 100 views of Kilauea Volcano in honor of one of my mentor artists--Hokusai. Hokusai created the famous work 100 Views of Mt. Fuji.

The paintings are available in book format in two volumes. Each volume contains images of fifty paintings exhibited in a digitally printed book of 106 pages. It is for sale on CreateSpace and Amazon.
