The Art of Steve Davis
Email Steve directly @

Steve Davis was born in Long Beach, California on August 29, 1957. His parents encouraged his creativity, and he started his artistic education at age 10. From an early age he felt a connection to nature, especially to the ocean that bordered his home. His early closeness to nature is now apparent in his beautiful, lusciously realistic paintings of the natural world. Even at this young age, his artistic talent was already apparent.

While in high school, he was already attending college art classes. At 18, he decided to seriouly pursue a career as an artist. Eventually, he moved to Hawaii, to the islands that now inspire his art so much. 

His paintings are displayed in some of the finest galleries in Hawaii, California, Arizona and New Mexico. He uses several techniques with style and grace, including watercolors, acrylics and oils.

1976 - El Camino Jr. College (design and watercolor)
1977 - Art Center College of Design of Los Angeles (drawing and painting)
1984/1985 - Northern Arizona University (painting & monotype)
1986 - Arizona State University (printmaking & monotype)
Steve has been a special friend for all the years I have lived on the Garden Island.  I marvel at his ability to capture the beauty of Kauai and her people in his artwork.Lilikoi
Wahine O Kekaha
An ethereal, almost angelic Hawaiian woman, her head crowned by a plumeria lei, sits on a white sand beach in this painting. A calm sea washes behind her and violet-grey clouds float in the distance, giving a real sense of actually being there, sitting next to this mysterious woman.
This mystical view of Kauai's famous Kalalau valley has captured the hearts of countless visitors. 
Ho'olewa ~ (Hula Hips)
Ho'olewa, meaning to float or sway, describes a beautiful hula dancer poised gracefully in front of Waimea Canyon. Sacred Hawaiian Ti leaves adorn her waist as she looks toward into the almost Southwestern colors of the Canyon. 
Waimea Canyon
Different than most of Steve Davis' paintings in that it is acrylic on board as opposed to watercolor, this early morning view of what Mark Twain called "The Grand Canyon of the Pacific" is filled with the colors and magic of Kauai. 
Na Pali Coast ... is a dreamy, yet photorealistic, view of one of Steve Davis' favorite trails along the beautiful Na Pali coast.
The Healer ... Kauai Rainforest 
Heliconia ... This painting seems more like a portrait of a flower than the typical Hawaiian floral painting. Green and red contrast beautifully and light glints off the leaves in a remarkable view of this rainforest flower. 
Commissioned Portraits ~ Zoli, Makai, Violinist, and Laura

Tunnels Beach
The number one snorkle spot on the North Shore of Kauai. Mount Makana (Bali Hai), the mountain made famous in the movie "South Pacific" can be seen in the background.

Island drama and beauty unfold in the paintings of artist Penny Nichols.  Well known for her lifelike portraits and Hawaiian floral and landscape paintings, this Oahu native has made her home on the Garden Island of Kauai since 1974.

Nichols credits her mother, well known Honolulu artist Dorothy Teele Buscemi, with giving her the desire to pursue a career in art.  "I grew up in an art gallery, surrounded by artists.  It was a very rich learning environment," she says.

Dividing her time between painting and teaching - adult classes, children's classes, as well as private students - Nichols enjoys her busy schedule.  Her philosophy is simple.  "I strive to paint with honesty those things which move me.  I try to capture the particular light or mood that first caught my eye.  Hawaii abounds with wonderful subject matter.  Interpreting the subject in a unique and personal way is my goal."

The art of Penny Nichols hangs in homes and offices throughout Hawaii, and across the mainland and Europe.

Penny is also a special friend and a gifted artist and teacher who has generously shared her talent with my own children for many, years on Kauai.  For this we will be eternally grateful.   Lilikoi
