AlohaI'm Ann and I live in Hilo on the island of Hawaii with my husband, Mick and 4 Bouvier des Flanders dogs. My husband and I have a video production company, Tropical Visions Video, Mick has been documenting Kilauea volcano for over 25 years. We have a rich full life that takes us out to the lava activity both by hiking and helicopter. When I can I have my hands in my artwork, I handpaint baby clothes, tie dying baby clothes, childrens t-shirts and woman and men's shirts, beaded earrings,knitting (I love making baby items), and recently I have gotten into painting prayer flags, appreciating the power in intentions that can go into making them.
