Featured Artist Amy Monthei: 

Amy Monthei is a nationally known legally blind painter residing in Honolulu, HI .  She lives a life filled with irony, perceiving the world from a truly unique perspective, channeling those experiences to shape her own philosophy as an advocate and an artist.  Amy received her BFA in Visual Art from Grandview University in Des Moines Iowa.   Amy regularly shows and sells her work in many regional galleries.  Her work is included in many private and corporate collections throughout the United States including UnitedHealth Group, The Mayo Clinic, Claremont Optometry Group and UAB Callahan Eye Hospital.  You can find her work on Facebook at Monthei Fine Art.

 

Featured Artist Brianna Arnolde: 

Brianna is yoga instructor, social change-maker, and acrylic artist.

A Chicago native, Brianna graduated with her Bachelor’s degree in Information and Communication Technologies from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa in 2014. She has spent the last 11 years living in Kailua, is an instructor at CorePower Yoga, and is helping to lead a progressive new initiative called Benefit Partners, an incubator and accelerator for radical ideas, projects, and organizations with a mission to bring more goodness into the world. 

From a young age, Brianna found art to be a vehicle for both teaching and learning empathy and compassion. Curious and awestruck by humans and culture, Brianna began to imagine and create unique faces within otherwise normal and abstract designs and patterns as she moved through the world. 

Putting pen (or brush) to paper allowed these imaginative faces to come alive. 

An idealist and optimist, Brianna hopes that her passion of painting the colorful and compelling faces behind the stories she feels should be shared will create space for a little more love, light, and healing.
