About

Native Floridian Goes Koo-Koo for Tiki Art and Creative Projects Flow Like Hot Lava

A Native Floridian who now resides in Sunny Los Angeles, I have been an artist since I could grip a crayon in my baby fists.

I sign my acrylic paintings "RARABIRD" because that is the nickname my father gave me as a child.

I have been obsessed with the world of tiki since my first visit to Disney World's Enchanted Tikiroom. I love making fantasy art based on the themes of tiki, tropics, exotica, Oceania, Polynesia, Hawaiiana, mermaids, surfing, sailing, sea-life, oceans, beaches, seashells, and tropical flowers, foliage and birds.

I sell my products and paintings at public Tiki marketplaces in Los Angeles, as well as art galleries in Hawaii.
