Excerpt from Preface
“What makes this book so amazing is the sharing of each artist’s gift to enhance not only our people but the place where we all live. This book shows you what the real Hawaiʻi is all about: our islands, each individually unique and brought to life by these creative artists. That is the Spirit of Aloha.”

-Ronald Williams
President & CEO, Atlantis Adventures
Former Board Chairman, Hawaiʻi Tourism Authority


“In Aloha Expressionism, Lynda McDaniel and Tiffany DeEtte Shafto present works by 50 Hawaiʻi artists working in all media. The large, full-color format and high-quality illustrations are accompanied by sensitive descriptions of each artist’s work. Each of Hawaiʻi’s four main islands are represented here in dazzling detail. It will be a pleasure to read for anyone who is interested in Hawaiʻi art and craft, both traditional and modern, and in the Spirit of Aloha as it survives and thrives in modern times.”

-Robert T. Soppelsa
Senior Curator, Art in Embassies

“Constantly on the lookout for inspiration for my clients and my own designs, Aloha Expressionism by Contemporary Hawaiʻi Artists is an amazing resource. To see all the beautiful artwork and be able to read the story behind each artist is truly inspiring. I love that the book has a chapter devoted to each island and enjoy hearing and seeing the connection of the artist to ‘their’ island through the artists work. The creativity and connection through subject matter, material, color, pattern and texture is an astounding connection to this place we love.”
