Cyanea macrostegia is known formerly from Lāna`i but now found only on Maui.   Dark velvet purple-black curved flowers emerge from this rain forest tree.  The nectar of these unusual flowers and the orange berries are food for Hawaiian forest birds.  These palm-like trees with paddle-shaped leaves are evocative of a pre-historic jungle.  The species is now only found in a healthy and diverse rain-forest. Lobelioids are one of the most spectacular examples of island evolution in flowering plants with curved flowers matching the bill of their bird pollinators.  - Melissa Chimera

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.
