This business was started in 2010, when I had an interest in making the Hawaiian Island Chain from Koa wood, and therefore started to see what was possible. Varying degrees of success and failure resulted in this process–occasionally the shape was correct, however, it was not the right finish quality, or the finish quality was excellent but it was far too difficult to produce.
Eventually the challenge shifted from the island’s shape to all the other facets of an island chain such as hanging hardware, finish quality, and other considerations–that divide a gallery quality piece from one which is not.
Finally, one has the problem of offering artwork at a sustainable price, and persuade; you, the customer, that purchasing such artwork online is a reasonable idea!
In 2017 I met my future wife who is from Hong Kong, she started to take over the planning, organization, and other logistics–such support has been most appreciated and has enabled me to focus on what I do best.
From 2014 I was studying online towards a four year business degree and I graduated in 2018 with a BSBA in General Management–the GPA per semester went up exponentially around 2017 and for what reason I shall let the reader decide.
