Aloha from beautiful Hilo, Hawai'i.
I am an artist who specializes in woodcarving, woodworking and design. From full-size outrigger canoes to Koa paddles, free standing fish hook sculpture, storyboard relief carving, sculpture, AI design, furniture and more. I love the variety of requests that come my way. The variety of clients too! Designers, Hilton Hotels, Bali Hai Resort, Fiji airways, Disney, Polynesian Football Hall of Fame, Museums to involved interior decor projects and of course the many orders that come through my. website.
I am very competitive with myself. I am always trying to push myself that extra step, to learn and improve.
My website is oceaniacarving.com and my instagram page is under Tevita_Kunato
This blog will most likely be similar to my social media posts but with more explanation. Process, failures and success. How I have learned to generate sales. Sourcing my timber. Sharpening my tools. Design process. Packaging and shipping art.
My job is fun. It's living my dream, to be earning a living doing what I love.
You are warmly invited to follow along.
