Chris Larson

Lahaina, January-Chris Larson

MAUI HANDS GALLERY AT 612 FRONT STREET IN LAHAINA PRESENTS WATERCOLOR PHOTO ARTIST, CHRIS LARSON, EVERY FRIDAY IN JANUARY FROM 11-2 AND ON SECOND FRIDAY FROM 4-7.

Chris Larson’s artistic journey began at age thirteen when she took an art class from her oil painter mother. Her journey continued merrily into watercolor, acrylic, charcoal, graphic design and photography. Chris says she loves how color, light and shadows visually define objects and enjoys using watercolors and acrylics to express that look in her paintings. She also enjoys taking her original photos through a series of creative processes and hand enhancements to get a vivid watercolor painting effect while staying true to the vision of her original image.

MAUI HANDS GALLERY AT 612 FRONT STREET IN LAHAINA PRESENTS WATERCOLORIST LUANA KAMA EVERY TUESDAY IN JANUARY FROM 4:30PM – 7:00 PM. COME WATCH THIS TALENTED ARTIST CREATE PIECES LIVE IN OUR GALLERY.

"My name is Luana Kama and I love to paint! I enjoy painting with watercolor… I find it fascinating to see the pigments and water flow on paper. My favorite subjects to paint are people and flowers. I started taking classes several years ago when I became semi-retired. I had a wonderful teacher and found myself falling in love with watercolor painting and the various techniques that can be used to get different effects. I have not stopped painting since and still take classes. I have done commission work and have paintings on sale at Maui Hands Lahaina. I have lived in Lahaina most of my life and attended Kamehameha III School and Lahainaluna High School. I am part Hawaiian on my mom’s side and “Haole” on my dad’s side. I have always loved art and did take classes throughout my life but when I got married and started to raise my family (5 boys), drawing and painting were pushed to the side. Today, I’m still living in Lahaina and having a great time painting like crazy. My other interests are sewing, reading, cooking and baking, crafts, and I take classes and teach Hula."

Welcome to the dream world of Amy Tessier. Be prepared to be swept into realms of mystical creatures, watery dimensions, and celebrative regalia. Sweeping journeys with characters that evoke human kindness, friendship, romance, yearning mystery, nature, adventure and hope. Amy works quickly and from a meditative capacity. Influenced by Picasso’s work and sometimes similar to Chagall’s, her artworks range from pastels to watercolor and acrylics, frequently embellished with torn papers, gesso, shiny objects, foil and other oddments that may provide interest and dimension. Deeply moved by the illustrations of classic children’s literature, she has written, illustrated and published two children’s books. Amy grew up in Spokane, Washington and had her first art show at the Cedar Street Bridge in Sandpoint, Idaho at the age of 22. Since then, she has shown her art in Sun Valley, Park City, Aspen and Maui where she currently resides with her husband, Brooks.

Her fine art paintings are executed on canvas and most recently on metal. Kathy personally grinds the metal sheets to enhance her fine art paintings, bringing her art to an unmatched level of radiant beauty. Photographs of her art can only capture a portion of her “must see” pieces which vibrate and dance with the surrounding light as it hits the etched metal surfaces.
