About this year’s Guest Artist:

Born in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1962, Patrick Ching has spent a lifetime devoted to the preservation of Hawaii’s native wildlife. He grew up exploring the valleys and shorelines of Hawaii and during a month long Outward Bound wilderness program, saw his first Hawaiian Hawk in the sky over Pololou valley.

“During that experience I decided to devote my life to educating people about Hawaii’s native wildlife through my art”.

In 1980 Patrick won a scholarship to Otis/Parsons Art Institute in Los Angeles. He also attended the University of Hawaii at Leeward college and UH Manoa. His most influential mentor is international surrealist artist John Pitre.

Patrick volunteered for many wildlife organizations and eventually became a ranger for the US Fish and Wildlife Service at the Kilauea lighthouse on Kauai and also lived for extended periods of time among sea turtles and monk seals on the remote North Western Hawaiian Islands. He has authored many award winning books including Sea Turtles of Hawaii, The Hawaiian Monk Seal and Honu and Hina.

Patrick now travels internationally painting and conducting realistic nature painting workshops.

“I paint the places and things that I love with the colors that have surrounded my life.
My objective is to take the beauty that I have experienced and bring it into people’s homes and their lives so that they may appreciate the things that are Naturally Hawaiian.”
