Patrick Ching - Hawaii Artist & Nature Environmentalist
Patrick Ching - Hawaii Artist & Nature Environmentalist This website features the work of Hawaii artist, Patrick Ching, a reknown nature artist and owner of Patrick Ching Art in Waimanalo, Oahu and Princeville, Kauai.
Colette Chow - I first met Patrick in 1997, at his store, Naturally Hawaiian. I have almost every piece of literature Patrick Ching has authored,illustrated. I have used them in my literature, science, social studies and Hawaiian studies classes. They are factual, instructional,sensitive to Hawaii's frail creatures and environment, appealing to children both in color and story content. Patrick Ching's work expresses and shares his knowledge and personal experience with the creatures and environment.
Many of my fourth grade students of Waimanalo Elementary and Intermediate School, had the privilege of art classes with Mr. Ching, on campus. Mr. Ching is not only a great artist and appealing author, but is gifted with teaching skills, as he relates well to children, keeps their attention and builds everyone's self-esteem in drawing. An' I can draw attitude!'
I own many of Patrick's works, even though in affordable print sizes. I love the beauty, peace, serenity, detail of his works. Some paintings take me to places I have not physically visited,but feel as though I have thru his work. Many of his drawings/paintings introduce me to creatures I have not experienced outside of textbooks, but he paints them in their habitat, in such a remarkably sensitive way that makes them 'come to life.' The combined efforts of Patick and his mom, in the work,Master's of the Heart is awesome and inspirational.
Lastly, Patrick Ching, has brought a sprit of kindness,caring, generosity and spiritual inspiration to both myself and my students, that we hope to spread to others and to nature.

Inspiration: Honu - Hawaiian Sea Turtle, comes to rest on balmy shores, with thoughts transcending the Honu - Hawaiian Sea Turtle, comes to rest on balmy shores, with thoughts transcending the depths of time. Mana'o - thoughts, ideas, not reserved for humans but all living beings. In old Hawaii the Honu was a respected being and a source of food eaten only by royalty. In recent times the Honu have been hunted to the threat of extinction and became protected by law. Now they live comfortably among us and even come to rest on shores frequented by people.

Inspiration: The fluid motion of Hawaiian dolphins near the surface, are tinted with reflections of paradise. Pali Manu Kuahiwi
Inspiration: The excitement of the journey into the sunset. Two birds fly off into the vibrant colors of a Hawaiian sunset. A sprinkle of pink rain is accented by the silhouette of coconut palms as rows of comforting waves make their way to shore. The crescent moon resembles the hull of a celestial canoe and the twinkle of starlight announces the coming of twilight. What is a Gicle'e? Gicle'e prints are the finest reproductions available today. Gicle'e prints are used by the Louvre Museum in Paris to exhibit works that are too valuable or fragile to be displayed in public.
