About Maui Hands galleries:

Owner and founder, Panna Speas, opened the first Maui Hands gallery in the spring of 1992 in Makawao. Other Maui locations include Paia, Lahaina and Ka’anapali at the Hyatt Regency. The Santa Monica store is the first mainland location.

“The inexhaustible beauty of the Hawaiian Islands has cultivated native talents and attracted a large and diverse population of artists who now call the Hawaiian Islands their home. “Whatever an artist new to Maui had been doing before, the feel of their work tends to shift to representing that carefree and friendly spirit of Aloha that is Maui. Artists born and raised here show their expansive love of the islands through their work. Artist’s who have moved here from all corners of the world have incorporated the education and talent from their culture into a Hawaiian expression with ease,” explains Panna Speas, Maui Hands founder and owner.
