"The plant portrayed here is the White Bird of Paradise also known as the Travelers Palm. Though not technically a palm at all, it’s graceful leaves branch out in a giant fanned shape," says Patrice.

"I have tried to paint this beautiful plant before, but because of its stature, when I tried to paint it realistically, I portrayed the top alone, forgetting the trunk. Suddenly it hit me — I could paint all of the parts of the plant that I like the most — the trunk, the flower, and the leaves, in a new way. I would show you my favorite parts of the plant, each to their best advantage.

The Sum of the Parts celebrates the leaves along the side, the flowers in the middle, and the beauty of the trunk on top."

Quality. Beauty.

The quest for mastery.

These are the things I look for from the artists I choose to share with you.

When you make a purchase, you know you're buying innovative, original works from Hawaii's master artists.


Sophisticated, warm, friendly and features true art. Not the boiler-plate samples one sees in Honolulu or Kona, but beautiful varieties of truly fine art. Sculptures, carvings, blown glass, photography and paintings. An elegant display of thousands of hours of dedication.

This is the nicest gallery on the island featuring local and Hawaiian artists. Beautiful collection and a lovely owner who authored several books about the local artists. She is a great resource.
