Kauai artist, Marionette, fell in love with this Garden Island in 1992 and has been painting “Hawaiian Style” ever since. Her works include the techniques of acrylic, silk painting, and watercolor.

Her paintings can be found in public and private collections throughout the world. If you are looking for that special something to bring back fond memories (or future dreams)of your trip to Hawaii, you've come to the right place!

Recently, Marionette opened her own studio in Waimea, Kauai named "Painting Paradise". She teaches a variety of classes in her studio Wednesday through Saturday where you can also find original paintings, prints, and gifts. Marionette loves to work on commission paintings, murals, and portraits!

She is also a graphic designer and has created numerous commercial designs for some of Kauai’s businesses such as Kauai Coffee. She recently painted the cover of "Last Clear Chance" by Bob Tripp, author and test pilot. Her reproductions can be found at The Kauai Coffee Gift Shop in Eleele, Kauai, Island Soap and Candle Works in Koloa, Kauai, The Kokee Museum Gift Shop in Kokee, Kauai, Gallery West in Waimea,Kauai, and Taro Fields (carrying her line of original silk scarves) in Poipu, Kauai.

She is a member of Etsy's Design Style Guide Team and Visual Arts Street Team (VAST) http://vastgallery.blogspot.com/ Please visit her blog at:http://www.kauai-artist.blogspot.com/ (yes, there is a "dash" between kauai and artist)! And her websites at Etsy and Painting Paradise

Marionette and I both live on Kauai. We met through Etsy and have become fast friends working together on community projects, workshops and art classes. She is a beautiful being, filled with aloha and a newlywed!!!

Getting to know Marionette has been a true joy. She exudes the "aloha" spirit. She lives her dreams, and her passion shows in her art.

I didn't know she was a newlywed! Congratulations, Marionette!

thank you Schar for a wonderful post!
