We live to make our clients happy! Take a look at what folks are saying about us below.

Your package with the two hair clips just arrived! They are perfect! Mahalo for making this an easy purchase for me and my respect to you for your efficiency and professionalism in running an excellent business. All the recipients of my gifts last spring were thrilled and I was happy to find many special works in one spot.

We received the “Midnight Mist” piece from Richard DiGiacomo yesterday… Thank you – it’s a beautiful piece. We bought a triptych of his from Maui Hands a few years ago and have it hanging above the fireplace on our back porch. We’re thrilled to have another of his works to hang in the same area. Hope to visit Maui again this coming February and will stop by the gallery to visit!


Maui Hands Client

Thanks for all the years of opportunity to sell my jewelry. It seems a good time for me to retire… I had a great time holding fast to the Molokai lifestyle and adjusting to its trade-offs. I really appreciated your inclusion of my work into your grand roster of artists.

Your vision helped sustain and enrich me and I know many artists feel the same as I do. I hope you stay well and continue on, even in these unimaginable times. Your galleries provide much needed hope for our cultural and inspirational well-being. Thanks again. Best wishes!

My wife and I first visited their store in Paia. The store was very well merchandised and the staff was very helpful. When our kids were very little they loved going to the beach and collecting pieces of sandglass. At Maui Hands they have a local artist named Beba who exhibits her whimsical and really creative wall art. We ended up buying a piece at the Paia store and [they] informed us that Beba would be at their Lahaina location if we wanted to meet her in person. Unfortunately, we ran out of time and had to catch our flight back to the mainland.

This is where Maui Hands goes above and beyond for their customers! A few weeks later I went on their website to look for another piece to add to the one we purchased. Unfortunately, they didn’t have the piece we were looking for, but their [Lahaina] manager Bonnie was extremely helpful and put us in touch with the artist, Beba, and she was gracious enough to create a special piece for us. Who does that anymore?

They truly exhibit the essence of aloha spirit! If you’re looking for a place that exhibits and supports the local artists of Hawaii and takes pride in what they do, see Bonnie and you will not be disappointed! Thanks Beba and Bonnie! See you again when we come back to the island!

“Life Like A Wave” came today. It is beautiful art – stunning my fiance.

We love it. Our spirits soar. Mahalo.

Aloha from Big Island! Just a little love note to tell you all how much I regard and appreciate everyone at Maui Hands. The steps you have implemented to keep the galleries going during the pandemic are admirable. It will be thrilling to be back open again. One step at a time.

With faith and hope for the future in the art community and beyond, much aloha.

We were helped by Mouna in the Makawao gallery and we were so pleased with the service she provided. She was patient, informative, and it was just a great experience overall.


Margie & Perry Davis

I just wanted to let you know that my piece arrived today. It is beautiful. You obviously took great care to ensure it arrived safely. Thank you so much.

Keri Johnson

Thanks Luis for following up on the phone! 
It’s certainly encouraging to see that some companies do care about their customer service and go beyond what is expected.  Our print arrived safely and in perfect condition.

Carolina Dealy

Oh my goodness these two pieces are gorgeous!!!!!!! They arrived this afternoon and I must say my heart was going pitter patter as I opened the box.  They are EXACTLY what I had hoped for!  THANK YOU for your help in all of this from the finding of the pieces, emailing with me back and forth and the amazing shipping!  Talk about fast!  I so appreciate the cute bag, the cards and bi-fold cards about Marian Fieldson.  I almost felt like I got to come to your store! 
I am so grateful!

Terra Klein

Jennifer, We just wanted to let you know that today we received the glass nautilus by Chris Upp. The sculpture arrived intact and we are really pleased with it! Thanks so much for the excellent job in packaging. Regards,

Hans & Lynn Verwijs

Chris: My new double switchplate arrived today! It is so beautiful–perfect! Thanks so very much,


Louis, My ring arrived this week and I wanted to thank you for your help in selecting it. Rick and I are very happy with our rings and will always remember you for helping us commemorate our 35 years together. Please express my gratitude to the artist as well. Thank you again,


Thank you so much. Our beautiful painting has arrived today (on our wedding anniversary date). I can hardly wait to get it home to open and hang. We have a spot already picked out. Your help and enthusiasm was invaluable to us and we are glad to have met you both (Rachel and Chris). We have already booked our condo for next year and we will definitely be dropping in to see you. When you see Jack again, please give him an extra big hug from us.

Recently, my husband and I purchased a framed photo from your lovely store in Paia, Maui. It was the photo of Secret Beach with the black matt and Curly Koa wood frame. I want to thank you for taking such care in the packing and shipping of the photo, it arrived in Canada in great shape, so well packed it took us a while to get it unpacked! Thank you to Christi and Jennifer for your kind attention. We visit your shop each trip to Maui and we look forward to doing so again. Thank you.

Gena and Ron Jarvis

During our yearly trip to Maui, I dropped-off some precious things that I had purchased from Maui Hands during a prior trip, that were in need of some TLC. Devon kindly took care of me without hesitation, and I am very grateful for that. The ring and necklace that needed some work are very special to me, and Devon saw to it that the items were repaired. Many mahalos to you and Christi for taking such good care of my things. The ring looks like new, and the necklace is beautiful once again. Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you! You will always be my favorite store in Maui 🙂


My husband go to Hawaii every year and over the past two years we’ve purchased two bracelets from the Varsha collection and a Koa wine bottle holder. We love our purchases and have received many compliments, especially about the bracelets. I have several friends who’ve asked where I got them and if I would mind if they purchased ones like them. I don’t mind sharing because they are lovely works of art that I truly love and treasure. I wear the bracelets every day even to work. I am a Registered Nurse and my patients love examining the bracelets and learning about them. The bracelets serve as a great distraction when I am starting IVs on the patients—they are more mesmerized by the lovely bracelets than by what I am doing to them. Thank you for such beautiful works of art and for such a great shop that we love to visit every time we are in the Islands!

Kathie Wise Willmore

Just wanted to let you know that our beautiful Meditation Monk has arrived safely to its new home in our garden. Bulbs and hostas are just beginning to peak out of the soil and our Monk is there to greet them. We are thrilled with the purchase. I mentioned at the time that I had been wanting one of these guys for several years and this year this one called out to me. We always enjoy shopping in your store – I purchased earrings and necklace as well as the Monk – thank you for the careful and prompt shipping of Marylyn’s beautiful artwork!

Dianna Woolley

I just wanted to let you know that I received the bracelet I ordered from you. It is wonderful!!! When the light catches it … it sparkles. The artist did a wonderful job!! Once on your wrist you don’t want to take it off … ever. Thank you again.

Shelley Campbell

I just wanted to let you know that I received my package in perfect condition last Monday and I absolutely love all my items that I purchased at Maui Hands! I was really impressed with how much care was given in wrapping each fragile item. Your earrings that you specially designed for me with the three triangles is also absolutely fabulous!! I also received my credit in the mail for the other pair of earrings and for the difference of the shipping cost. Thank you for keeping the shipping cost at a minimum and for going the extra mile to design the earrings. I can’t wait until my next trip to Maui so I can shop at Maui Hands 🙂

Joyce Shinohara

Thank you so much for your perseverance in finding me the perfect Hawaiian necklace!! The earrings look adorable and I can’t wait to get my package!!!!!! Mahalo.


I just wanted to send a note with a huge “MAHALO!” to Maureen at the Kaanapali Maui Hands. She helped us with two Monica Sweet photos. We got the two prints yesterday back here in Columbus, Ohio. It was well packaged and arrived sooner than we expected. Thank you Maureen for helping us get exactly what we wanted – we can’t wait to get our prints framed and hang in our new house. Mahalo!

Amy & James Taylor

I come to your locations each time I visit Maui. I send everyone I know that visits to you as you have the BEST selection of art/gifts anywhere! Can’t wait to get back.

Kathryn M Lardie

I perused your website after receiving the Big Holiday Sale mailing. Let me congratulate your gallery on an impressive website!! It was lovely to look at your current inventory and to know I can bring a bit of Maui to our home via the internet. We’ve enjoyed the paintings we bought by Julie Houck very, very much. Since we’ll be there again next summer, I look forward to visiting you all then. Take care. Sincerely,


I was in your store about 1 1/2yrs. ago and bought several items. I loved what I saw and can’t wait to go back again. I believe in supporting local artists. Thank you.

Sheri Elisco

I write to commend Luis for an outstanding job at representing your gallery and participating artists. He stands out as a “diamond” in the field of customer service and solid work ethic. He deserves recognition for absolutely knowing how to relate to the public, knowing his products and conveying professionalism with humor and sincerity, and a delightful personality and disposition. My sister-in-law, Cathy and I thoroughly enjoyed our interaction with him and he made our visit to your wonderful gallery most enjoyable. In a culture of quickly dwindling good customer service, Luis gives hope to all who encounter him. Mahalo.

Karen Evans

First time in Maui last month. I visited all of the your stores. Just love everything you have. Bought many items.

Janet Loewen

My husband and I were fortunate enough to travel to Maui for our honeymoon two years ago, and Maui Hands was by far my favorite gallery/shop. Whenever I receive the (featured artists) e-mails, I am reminded of the my amazing trip and hope to return someday. Thank you!

Allison Karpeichik-Hill

Hi Barbara – Thanks so much for sending those 2 perfect gifts – so beautifully packaged with all the related information about the artist and Maui Hands. I really appreciate your time and effort, and two lucky people will receive those gifts. Again, many mahalo’s for your help with this order. Aloha.


Hi Diane – I just wanted to let you know that I did receive the platters and they look wonderful! Nothing broke and they are even prettier in person! Thank you so much for all of your hard work and help! I really appreciate everything you did for this ‘birthday surprise’ for my friend. I am really pleased with the service and kindness that you and your company offer. Maybe we will actually meet each other one day…if I can talk my husband into taking me to Maui!

Kristy Raymond

Thank you! I got a return call today from Diane and put in an order with her. When I hit the California Lottery I will be ordering MANY things off your site! I love this site and wish you smooth sailing with the new on-line ordering link. Aloha!

Christine Hansen

Aloha Barbara – Thank you for sending the wedding glasses with such care! They arrived in perfect condition. I do appreciate the extra effort I am sure it took to ensure their safe arrival. A bit of Maui will now always be with my daughter and her husband. Again thank you and aloha.

Linda Zakarian

I visit your stores every time I visit Maui! I love the products and never leave without buying something!

Brooke Pickel

We love Maui Hands artists!

Debbie Isard

I was in Maui at the end of March and visited your stores in Lahaina and Paia. In Lahaina a lovely and helpful sales associate named Ashley helped me. She was so enthusiastic about your store and the artists who sell their creations there. I bought a beautiful necklace made by Carol and Michael Schwarz and ordered earrings to match, which Ashley helped design. She took pictures of the necklace and sent a sketch to the artists. The earrings arrived and are beautiful – just as I had pictured them. Again, I enjoyed visiting your store and looking at the unique items you have on display.

Kay Larson

Thanks, again, for all your help and patience. This experience has just reinforced why I tell all my friends about visiting Maui, and Maui Hands, in particular! – Best from Connecticut,

Nancy Meislahn

I returned home and decorated the picture in my living room. It’s really fantastic! It was a great time to talk with you about pictures. Thank you for your kind help.

Hanako Takasu


I just received my fresh water pearl necklace and earrings I bought on your Front Street store a couple of weeks ago. I asked to have the necklace shortened and have earrings made with the leftover pearls. I love them! Thank you so much. I couldn’t be happier with the new length of the necklace, and the earrings were just what I wanted. Libby helped me with it so please thank her for me. I appreciate your help.

Vicki Gunn

Aloha Nui Loa,
Mahalo nui loa for informing me about Maui Hands. I’m certain that this excellent show will be a great success. Please inform me of your new events.
