Limited Edition Giclee (10/50) - Artist Enhanced with Mixed Metal Leaf on canvas 24" h x 24" w “Breath is sacred in part because it carries the words of the pule (prayer).” (Pukui, Haertig & Lee) "“A Prayer For Our Brothers” is about respect between all men, between brothers, sons and fathers, feeling the love of family, honoring the ancestors that stand behind us in time, remembering those that we have lost together and a shared prayer for the future of our families. In this painting a father and son embrace with strength and grace and a deep knowing is shared between them in this moment that they will support and love each other always. The silver leaf is meant to symbolize the Mana that flows from them, between them and around them as they share the sacred breath of life. Mahalo to Ke’eaumoku Kapu and his son Kaulana Kapu for posing for this painting. Thank you for helping me bring this painting to life and trusting a total stranger with such a sacred expression." - Christina DeHoff

Original Woodblock Print - Edition of 21 30" h x 42" w - framed 23" h x 34" w - unframed Available unframed for $1,500 “Coral Garden” woodcut print was inspired by the sculptural beauty of Hawaii’s coral reefs. Corals are a central living structure of the Hawaii reef ecosystem. The amazing life that we see on the reef- fish, eels, shells, crustaceans, and so much more that is invisible to us, interacts with the coral in complex symbiotic relationships. The idea for this image arose after the bleaching event that devastated Kona’s reefs in 2015. It happened so fast. One summer day I was snorkeling at Captain Cook Monument and saw beautiful amethyst-colored corals. I quickly realized something was different, and when I looked closer I saw that the golden-colored surface polyps were gone and the coral was dead. The next time I visited stony shapes were white and shortly after that the algae moved in. In many areas the corals are growing again, and yet it will take many years for the reefs to recover their former diversity and beauty. I included my favorite corals on Hawaii’s reefs. These corals are not always found together, but I’ve taken artistic license to evoke the feeling and beauty of coral gardens. The plate and pillar corals on the right are common in Kealakekua bay. I love to hug the rocky shoreline when snorkeling. I’ve found huge cowries on rock shelves and once, a mass of several species of eels together. That was weird! The rocky shore is a boundary between the land and reef supporting a lot of life, and is shown at the top of the print. This is a reduction woodcut print on Rives French archival paper. It has beautiful deckle edges and is suited to float mount framing.

Film Photograph with Sepia Toner Printed on Canvas - Unframed 30.5" x 34" "During the day that Honolulu unveiled the Duke Kahanamoku statue, a group of men who , as young boys, were tutored by modern Hawaiʻi’s most famous ambassador, posed for the local newspaper. I squeezed in between the photo-journalists to capture the moment. Photography is history. All these men were important to Hawaiʻi and a link to the 'Duke,'" shares Cathy. 1999

Original Woodblock Print -Edition of 50 Framed - 28" h x 23.5" w Available unframed for $700 The Hawaiian Honeybee Series woodcut prints were commissioned by Big Island Bees to share the story of their relationship with honeybees in producing exquisite honeys from the nectar of three of Hawaii island's most nectar-rich trees. The team at Big Island Bees carefully tends to about 2,500 hives, transporting them during the various flowering seasons to the 'ohi'a forest, macadamia orchards and wilelaiki thickets to gather the nectar that is transformed in the hive into their signature honeys. In this image the 'i'iwi bird, a Hawaiian honeycreeper, and honeybees gather nectar from the brushy lehua flower of the 'ohi'a tree. Lehua honey, a favorite with Hawaii residents, is beautiful creamy white with a delicate flavor that crystallizes into a solid form. Historically the o'hi'a is Hawaii's most abundant endemic tree, found in many ecosystems, and is essential to the well-being and integrity of native forest ecosystems. 'Ohia are polymorphic. They grow in a variety of forms and ecosystems, and they exhibit great genetic diversity. The flowers range from orange, yellow, pink and red. Recently 'ohi'a on the island of Hawaii have been infected by a fast-spreading fungus that has already caused thousands of acres of this precious tree to wilt and die suddenly. Their genetic diversity seems to give some trees immunity to the fungus. This image depicts the full range of development of the lehua flower bud, blossom, the seed capsule dispersing the tiny seeds in the wind and the dried empty seed capsule. The female worker bees are shown flying to the flowers and then leaving after gathering nectar, with a full load of pollen attached to their legs, returning to the hive to deposit these goodies.
