Shauna Morrison • Village Galleries Maui

 

Lynn Shue, owner/director Village Galleries…

I first met Shauna and saw her unique hand fabricated art jewelry shortly after her arrival on Maui in 1992. Her designs stood out as original art I would be proud to carry in my galleries. 2008 celebrates 16 years of proudly representing this talented Upcountry artist.

Today, Shauna’s greatest passions in life are her two daughters, Tara and Kiana, her art and horses. She is currently working on some new designs inspired by her late mother’s horse, Anovar, who recently arrived on Maui from St. Croix. “Horses impart a magical strength and seem to know when you need an extra dose of encouragement. I hope to bring this magic to all who wear my new “Anovar” designs.” Her new works also feature the theme of “Sunrise on Maui”, “Jazzed on Maui” and “Maui Light-Hearted” and “Maui Big Water”. Shauna says new designs come to mind daily, so it’s always a delight to stop by and see what’s new.

Shuana is often “guest artist” with Village Galleries, located off the lobby at the Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua. Call for this week's schedule 669.1800

Artist Statement… From my early teens, I’ve been a admirer and collector of stones. After an inspiring trip to Ecuador, this passion led me to choose art as my full time occupation instead of returning to University of Washington.
