Shiroma uses various colors to symbolize different natural elements. His choice of marble gives the terrazzo warm, earthy tones, giving his work a sense of ancient organic timelessness. Shiroma will often use blue and green patinas to represent water. He feels a great connection with water, which he attributes to having grown up in Hawaii. After studying Indian culture, Shiroma says, he was inspired to create sculptures representing a connection to the earth.
Shiroma maintains studios in Hawaii and California. He has studied and exhibited internationally.
