Sustainable Dolphin Swims in Hawaii

As many of you know, swimming and interacting with free dolphins can be heart-opening, healing, and life-changing. This is huge for us humans!

Hawaii Vintage & Surf Art

Nick Kuchar

Nick grew up drawing & surfing in Florida. He enjoys surfing, baseball statistics, listening to Muddy Waters, herding cats, & driving his VW bus. Nick is inspired by the early days of surfing & beach culture, including the vintage color palette, typography & nostalgia that goes along with it.

He resides on the island of O‘ahu, Hawai‘i where he creates tasty compositions to share with his friends & strangers.

Several boutiques and galleries started to take note of his retro styled travel prints and slowly but surely his work started to become available in shops throughout the islands and beyond.

Heather Brown

Growing up in a family of artists and artisans in Southern California, Heather found her passions in both art and nature at a very early age.

Later, working as a boat captain and dive master to put herself through the Bachelors of Fine Arts program at The University of Hawaiʻi gave Heather the perfect vantage point to fill her head with the beautiful imagery of the Hawaiian Islands.

Heather honed her artistic skills as a student at the University, focusing primarily on the “lost arts” of intaglio printmaking, silkscreen printing, linocuts, woodcuts, and etchings which explains where her iconic style was born and bred.

“I have always only had one goal in mind when creating art since I was very young and it has never changed, I just want to make art that brings smiles to peoples faces and aloha to their hearts.”  Heather Brown
