Description

In December 1999, Chicago artist Mike Carroll and his wife, Kathy, visited Lāna’i to celebrate their 20th anniversary.  Within a week they made an offer on a fixer-upper plantation house and returned to Chicago to sell everything to commence a 2-year sabbatical on a quiet tropical island…Today they’re still on Lāna’i and the Mike Carroll Gallery is judged by many to be among the best galleries in Hawai‘i.

If you’ve fallen in love with a particular location on Lana’i or one of the neighbor Island this is your opportunity to let Mike turn your memory into an original sketch or oil painting!  During your private visit with Mike, at the gallery, he will get a feel for the locale you are wanting to commission. After he starts your commission piece you will  be sent a “photo/sketch” of the composition for approval before Mike puts brush to canvas.  Mike particularly loves creating original oil paintings as a surprise for birthdays, anniversaries, or as a “thank you” gift.
