Portraits

Portraiture has always interested me and I take commissions for both oil paintings as well as charcoal sketches.  I prefer to work from my own photographs to capture natural expressions. The setting, background and action all help create a timeless portrait that becomes a treasured family heirloom.

As a native Hawaiian, Vonnie met and painted elders (Hulu Kupuna) on the island of Moloka'i who are keeping the Hawaiian cultural traditions alive. Visit the website to learn about the project:  https://www.huiokuapa.org/hulukupuna-gallery
