Christina DeHoff

Makawao, August - Christina DeHoff

MAUI HANDS GALLERY AT 1169 MAKAWAO AVE., MAKAWAO PRESENTS SOULFUL PAINTER CHRISTINA DEHOFF IN RESIDENCE EVERY FRIDAY IN AUGUST FROM 11:00AM - 3:00PM

Christina DeHoff has many facets as an artist. A clear and recognizable theme runs through both her figurative visionary paintings and her landscape paintings. That theme is soulfulness. One can feel the presence of grace and love in her depiction of heart expanding oceans, sensual rolling hills and dream filled skies. The same emotions are equally potent in Christina’s figurative paintings. She has a unique, tender and intuitive way of communicating that which is sacred in this human experience.

Raised in Maine Christina now makes her home on the island of Maui. After graduating from the University of Maine in 1995 with a BS in Art Education, Christina created, owned and operated the Gallery at 357 Main in Rockland, Maine. For 10 years she represented over 50 artists. In 1999 Christina hung the first solo show of her own paintings, which proved very successful. Within two weeks all 30 paintings had sold. For the next 7 years she exhibited her paintings annually, with the same level of success. In 2006 Christina sold the gallery to pursue her art full time.

Christina’s artwork explores the many layers of the human spirit. “I continue to feel a calling to create paintings that tell stories of the heart and serve as reminders to the viewer that our lives are full of so much possibility”.

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.

Fortunate to call Maui his home for the past thirty years, Sam's love for the Island and Ocean has inspired him to create themed carvings out of the sea glass he finds on the north, south, and west shores of Maui. It has taken Sam several years to find enough glass to work with at various top secret locations on the Valley Isle. All pieces of glass were found on Maui beaches and any profits will go to Sam's favorite charity, his daughters college education fund.
