Mac James

Painting and drawing on Kaua'i since 2004 provides endless unique subjects to ponder and present, most often from everyday life on the Island. Ever moving air and water currents keep weather going and always in flux. On the land, in the sea and air, living creatures animal and plant alike share events of the day combined with evolution and current environmental armageddon. This flux and flow of elements and nature is what I emulate in drawing and painting. Working outside at different spots and times of day evolves the cocoon of capturing nature in virtual time, place and light of the hour. Light and subjects come to pass then forward on.
Field notes taken are a useful tool later in the studio to remind color and thoughts of the day. There is an endless array of materials, pigments, and tools available in nature here for painting, mark making, printing and sculpting to further combine imagination with reality of place. Hand in hand is the profound genuine oneness of the spirit realm offering endless subject matter. I aim to continue to awake and live Kaua'i as artist and lucky man; working each day inspired by past, present and future story yet to come.

Kelly Keane

My life revolves around the ocean. It is where I feel the most at peace, and also my greatest artistic inspiration. I am fascinated by the swirling colors and patterns of the waters surface, above and below. I aspire to capture not only its beauty, but also the serenity of the ocean with my art.

Max Lemaire

"Creativity and intuition have been the guiding forces in my life.  I see the world differently than most people.  I see the pattern that nature builds with. I see the sky as layers of paint.  I see shape and curves infinitely repeated. I see lights when I close my eyes."

Art as Magic - Oil Paintings & Custom Portraits

I love to paint the human form, defined by the touch of light & shadow. I focus on bringing alive, in myself and in you, the natural state of being we long for:  relaxation, strength, trust, connection, and freedom.  For me, a successful painting releases the fragrance of the sacred and the sensual into the space where it hangs.  It mirrors the beauty and power that is you. 

My subjects are both real people and timeless mythical archetypes.  With brilliant tropical colors, I paint a hula dancer as a priestess greeting the sunrise, a female canoe paddler as Hotumatua the first Polynesian navigator, my own daughters as mermaids, a couple relaxing on the beach as the gods whose lovemaking created the world.
