The glowing images painted by Pepe evoke a feeling of serenity. Pepe’s work offers a glimpse of true Hawai‘i by objectifying moments of warm light and an enduring love for the beautiful ‘aina (land). His focus on the movement of light shows Hawai‘i in a unique and alluring way. Pepe is self-taught and has quickly become one of Hawai‘i’s most sought after artists. After years of studying the monochromatic values of light in black and white, Pepe continues to work in oils in the full color spectrum.
