I worked on this OluKai collaboration with Mattircaria, an artist who creates natural dyes from flowers. We created our own custom dye colors using native Hawaiian plants and flowers! It came out beautifully and was featured in the “Sneaker materials Trend Concepts” report on WGSN for Spring/Summer 2021.

Sometimes I forget how happy it makes me to finish a painting. I started this one a while ago, but finished it tonight. I chose to paint this image for two reasons: one, I've been to the Greek island of Santorini, and it is breathtakingly beautiful, and two, it was a good color study. So many variations of blues, pinks and purples occur in this sunset light, cast on the blue and white buildings, and it was definitely a challenge to decipher them all.
