Mahalo! Not sure how one would get into Tiki Art Four. Three was by invite only as was one, I missed out on two because I wasnt paying attention. Otto von Stroheim curates these shows and makes the selections. Ive been making Tikis since 1987 and met up with Otto and Tiki news in about 1990 or 91. I always feel honored to be included.

Tiki Riviera
Ive been coming to terms with letting go of the big surf board. I'm ready, its yours!however its currently buried behind a pile of furniture. I cant wait to show off my new creations at my party in Sept.Stay tuned.Plus , I think that part of what mak4s some of my goofy art look really cool is seeing it in the context of my house.

Wow, Dawn that's a beautiful piece of art on wheels! Do u use the canoe or would that ruin the paint job on it ?

ST, The canoe is a 64 Dolphin Chief from M
Minnesota. Its fiberglass. Yes I use it. alot. it does take two people though. Its painted inside in aqua and green with Maori designs and the outside is painted in browns Then the whole thing gets covered in marine varnish. Because everything in Seattle has to be waterproof!Its big enough to carry three people and alot of gear and I made this hut like structure that fits into holes I made in the cross bars. I also have wheels so I can get it to the water easily. oh and his name is Chuck.

Hi again, I wanted to post a couple of pictures I took of things I made to-get ready for last weekends giant tiki show and tell.

I would like to explain what the globe means. No one has actually asked me about it, but I'm dying to tell . This is what I think the globe would have looked like prior to the last polar shift. Notice Lemuria in the middle of the pacific. Lemuria or Mu or Havaiki, or a dozen other names it has is the legendary homeland of all Pacific Islanders. I have been working on perfecting this version of the globe.

Here is my other piece in the gallery flanked by a pair of Boskos

These are canoe prows I made to complete some goofy art that goes all the way across the front of my house

this is my front entry showing one of my flat tropical flower arangements
a pile of tiki necklaces. all made with semi precious stones, vintage nuts and seeds, coral and pearls.

this is the tiki at the end of my hall, its one of the last pieces I have left that match the tikis I have in Luau(Green lake, Seattle) Its about 7ft and I had just put up the vintage tapa print wall paper about two hours before my Tiki Art Three guests arrived
