Hawai‘i based artist, Kris Punua, was born and raised on the island of Kaua‘i. Art was her biggest passion ever since she was a little girl. Whether it was dance, drawing, painting or ceramics— she always had a great desire to create.
Her biggest motivation is her ʻohana. Constantly balancing both her family and her business has taught her the power of passion and persistence.
Kris’ work is inspired by the people of Hawai‘i and all of its natural beauty. Her artwork illustrates the wahine and pua of the islands using bold lines and an earthy color palette. With her prints, she hopes to preserve the vibrancy of Hawai‘i’s culture while sharing the beauty of her island home.
