Dr. Joie "Yasha" Taylor, in 2013, was pleasantly surprised when she found herself so quickly a successful jeweler. She is also a meditation guide, dancer, musician, and has Ph.D in engineering from Cornell University. Her experience with meditation is supporting a keen focus and attention to each piece, her experience with dance and music frees her spirit, opening her innate creativity and her world travels inspire the ancient design influences in her fresh contemporary pieces. Her jewelry is so unique that many look at it and smile delightfully commenting, "Oh It’s so beautiful and so different!" No two pieces that are the same, she honors the uniqueness of each being. Her designs incorporate gemstones and fine beads with gold and silver metal forming techniques. Dr. Joie states "Gemstones and metals carry a specific quality that enhances physical, mental and often spiritual properties for sensitive souls. The aesthetic design of these pieces brings the inner beauty of the wearer to the surface."

Lahaina, April - Sandra Greenberg

MAUI HANDS GALLERY AT 612 FRONT STREET, LAHAINA PRESENTS PHOTOGRAPHER, SANDRA GREENBERG, EVERY FRIDAY IN LAHAINA FROM 4:30 PM- 7:30PM. A COLLECTION OF HER PHOTOGRAPHS FROM AROUND THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS ON DISPLAY.

"I was fortunate to grow up in New York City and have access to some amazing schools. I attended the high school of Art and Design in Manhattan and then went on to attend Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art where I majored in painting and photography. After Cooper Union I went to Pratt Institute in Brooklyn where I received my PD in Creative Development and Art Therapy. I later pursued educational degrees in Special Education and Supervision where I could use my license in Art Therapy and teaching, and actually support myself. My father was stationed in Schoffield barracks during World War II and filled my head with stories of Hawaii. My father had a hula girl tattooed on his arm, which was my version of what a princess would be like. I think part of me always knew that someday I'd be here. I am so grateful to be doing what I love, around people I love, in the place that I love. What can make you feel more alive than whales, turtles, rainbows and sunsets? That is what I want my pictures to show." View Sandra Greenberg's Artwork

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.

Christine Halton

Makawao, April - Christine Halton

MAUI HANDS GALLERY AT 1169 MAKAWAO AVE. PRESENTS OIL ON ETCHED WOOD PAINTINGS BY CHRISTINE HALTON MEET THE ARTIST AND WATCH HER CREATE THESE BEAUTIFUL PIECES WEDNESDAYS IN APRIL FROM 11:00AM - 4:00PM.

Christine’s eclectic and finely tuned style of expression began as a child and was nurtured throughout her life. While raising her children, her talent was cultivated through her job as Visual Display Coordinator of a large company, while continuing to paint and show her own work. When the artist moved to Maui to join the large art community here, she found inspiration everywhere. Her most recent pieces are very well received and reflect her love of the natural beauty of Maui. They are a combination of the fine expression of line through wood burning and the depth of color with oils paints. View Christine Halton's Artwork
