Honeycreepers of the Haleakalā Forest, was recently displayed at the juried art exhibition celebrating native species of Maui Nui

Mālama Wao Akua

at the Hui No‘eau Visual Arts Center

Honeycreepers of the Haleakalā Forest

This painting has sold, but is available as a hand-embellished archival canvas print. Contact me directly to discuss options.

I wanted to highlight Maui’s native forest birds that are critically endangered (ʻākohekohe and kiwikiu), endangered ( Maui ʻalauahio) or threatened (ʻiʻiwi) within their habitat.   

The composition is inspired by nostalgia, the midcentury barkcloth that curtained the closet of my summer bedroom where my grandfather’s military uniforms were stored.  The elegantly rendered leaves and blooms of intertwining hibiscus and bird of paradise (pua manu) were undeniably Hawaiian, the fabric likely purchased when my grandfather had a brief layover in Honolulu after the war (WWII). 

My intention—to capture the beauty and essence of each species, flora and avifauna, to hold them with regard and also show their vulnerability. The distant red glow in the background, while beautiful, evokes the threat all too present in our minds today. 

For references, I am honored to have partnered with photographer Jim Denny, who has been involved in conservation and capturing our native species for four decades.
