Here you will find original paintings and prints that I create in my studio, Painting Paradise, in Waimea Town on Kauai's sunny west side.

ALOHA from the beautiful, tropical island of Kauai! My name is Marionette and I am a full time artist and art instructor. I opened my studio/gallery "Painting Paradise" on the island of Kauai in 2004 where I teach a variety of classes such as watercolors, acrylics, encaustics, silk painting, pastels, and more. I have been painting professionally for over 25 years, and my paintings can be found in private and public collections all around the world!

I am excited to say that my art is now part of the permanent decor at the new Koloa Landing Resort at Poipu and at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa in Poipu. My painting "Ti Leaves and Palm Trees" was featured in The Artists Magazine's November 2013 issue just inside the front cover. I have also done some design work for Victoria's Secret, Designs Studios Honolulu, Aunty Lilikoi, Kauai Coffee, Hawaiian Pineapple Company, Mele Kalikimaka Tshirts, the cover of the short story "Kauai Getaway" by Gregg Edwards Townsley, and more.

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! I would be happy to personalize your art with a message from Kauai or even a special custom painting. Just send me a note.

I am a member of Women Artists of Kauai, Kauai Society of Artists, Garden Island Arts Council and the Kauai Made program. For more information, please visit my website at

Mahalo and have a warm and beautiful day!
