A modern master of marquetry, David Reisland’s fine wood-working, featuring everything from detailed flowers to tropical fish, feeds his need to continually strive for perfection. His ability to balance aesthetics and engineering to create beautiful furniture has earned him many awards, but its those intricate details that really set him apart.
David’s latest marquetry works go a step beyond with the use of transparent paints to bring the vivid colors of his subjects to life—created with the intention of filling your home with beauty while also perpetuating the life of the tree.
“As a fifth generation woodworker, the need to be in the studio is in my bones. My passion for woodworking has driven a career of almost 50 years and continues to fuel my creative process. My genetic history goes back to when my ancestors were the “traveling tinkerers” of southern Germany. I know now how I can accomplish new techniques I’ve never tried before – it’s in my DNA.
Commissions are always welcome and make up the majority of my business. My goal is to create a piece that reflects your wants and desires–a piece that will be a family heirloom for generations. From start to finish, we’ll work together to create a piece just right for you.” -David Reisland

Photographer, Cathy Shine
Cathy Shine began documenting Hawaii with film and her 100-year-old Leica camera more than 35 years ago. She has captured locations that no longer exist like Queen’s Bath, Green Lake, and Kona Village. She’s documented farmers’ love of the land for Merriman’s Restaurant, ventured behind the scenes at festivals, and continues to capture images that speak to our hearts.
“Since 1977, photography has been my passion. It allows me to convey my thoughts through images rather than words, and gave me the freedom to support my family,” shares Cathy. “Until the invention of digital cameras, film was a photographer’s only option. For me, the option hasn’t changed. My finished product is hand-prepared, produced in a darkroom, and not influenced by the digital age. Photography is an art that stops time and captures history.”
Now, her original darkroom processed images, are available as enlargements on canvas–allowing for grand works that speak to a deep love of Hawaii.
