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 28 years, and my paintings can be found in private and public collections all around the world!

My painting "Dreams of Kauai" was featured on the new Magnum PI (season 2, episode 5) and my art is now part of the permanent decor at the new Koloa Landing Resort at 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 design work for Designs Studios Honolulu, Aunty Lilikoi, Kauai Coffee, Hawaiian Pineapple Company, Mele Kalikimaka Tshirts, and the cover of two short stories by author, Gregg Edwards Townsley.

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 message.
