About The Artist

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.

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.

About The Artist

Amanda Scott has been a dedicated artist for over ten years.  Her muse is usually the female figure, which she renders beautifully in a variety of ethnic contexts, primarily Polynesian.  She is continuously learning new techniques from teachers, books and other artists.

Artist Statement

I make art because, for a while, I am transported to a fantasy world of my own creation. I’ve often wondered if I could be more practical, less of a dreamer. However, every time I’ve thought of giving away my paints it felt like I was dying. My paintings celebrate and explore man and womankind. My journey as an artist is inspired by the light that imbues one’s life when one pursues their joy.

MAUI HANDS GALLERY AT 612 FRONT STREET, LAHAINA PRESENTS WATERCOLOR ARTIST, LUANA KAMA, EVERY TUESDAY IN DECEMBER FROM 4:30-7:30PM COME SEE THIS CHARMING ARTIST PAINT LIVE IN THE GALLERY, ALONG WITH A COLLECTION OF NEW NEWEST CREATIONS.

Artist Statement

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.
