2015 ARTIST IN BUSINESS LEADERSHIP FELLOW

 

A self taught artist living in Honoka'a on the Big Island of Hawaii, Beau was able to add stone carving to his repertoire of ivory, wood, bone and other materials with the assistance of First Peoples Fund.  His pieces are one of a kind, created with traditional shapes and forms.

For the first time in 2015, Beau was asked to unveil his pieces at MAMo, the Native Hawaiian fashion show, held on Oahu and Maui. Beau's work comes from inspiration from what he believes his ancestors would be making today.

His exceptionally stunning photography is no exception to Beau's depth of talent.  He tells a story of his Hawaiian homelands and ancestors each time he presses the shutter.  Like his carvings, Beau creates limited edition and one of a kind photography prints, exclusive to each customer.
