In June, watercolor painter Luana Kama featured her vibrant artwork at Maui Hands’ Lahaina location on Front Street. Here’s what she had to say…

“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,” said Kama.

“My other interests are sewing, reading, cooking and baking, crafts, and I take classes and teach Hula.”

Maui Hands features a wide-range of artists, including fine textiles and basket artists like Ipo Kudlich and Neola Caveny. Glass artists include Daniel Moe, Shelly Batha, Jim Graper, and Steve Tillman. Maui Hands features a top-quality selection of local, talented, multi-skilled, and multimedia artists who all add extra creativity and excitement to the thriving island of Maui.

With four locations in Maui, Maui Hands knows how to impress people from all across the world with their distinct artwork. The gallery supports over hundreds of artists, potters, glassblowers, sculptors, and woodworkers, and gives Hawaiian art and culture an unique name!
