AUDREY LITKE --------------------
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Audrey Litke currently lives on Maui, working at an oceanfront resort and holding the title of Director of Revenue Management. It was her love of numbers and data that originally steered her towards a Psychology degree and eventually her current position, but she was also guided to the world of art by her Grandmother. Working on projects together and eventually given her own set of supplies, Audrey continued using inspiration from other work around her to fuel her own creations. Oil paint and pastels are her favorite medium and she enjoys the bold colors and fluidity that they create. Her newest work is a mixture of old and modern, with a little bit of nostalgia tugging at your heart strings.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
My consistent theme is the human subject since I started my work in the beginning of the 90’s. I feel my work expresses a spiritual uplift, passion and emotion within a silent atmosphere, consisting of unique colours and vital lines. After the earthquake, Tsunami and Fukushima nuclear crisis in Japan on the 11th of March 2011,the direction of my art work has been increasingly influenced by journalism and political approaches. The crisis over here is still ongoing. My art is a wake-up call for me. I hope that my work can help create a better relationship in the world society.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Hi my name is Aaron Loyd, i’ve been making art since my earliest memories. I began working with foam and fiberglass in the mid 60′s, and established my own label in 1968. I experimented a little with custom cars and motorcycles thru the 70′s, while still producing surfboards at the same time. In 1984, after a year on crutches due to a car accident, I returned to the ocean. This time it was with swim fins and a camera. The next 15 yrs. I spent travelling the world as a staff photographer for both Surfing and Surfer magazines. In 2001 I stepped out of professional photography, and took a job as a surfboard shaper for Al Merrick. During this time I really began to pursue fiberglass sculpture. My first fish was made in 2000 from a broken surfboard I found on Banzai beach, Oahu. The sea horses and turtles came after 2010. All pieces are constructed from recycled foam and fiberglass. I currently have a studio at Loyd Surfboards in Grover Beach, Ca., and a studio at Eric Arakawa Surfboards in Waialua, Oahu, Hi.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Watercolor is a beautiful and very unpredictable medium, which gives such an expression of color with unforgiving results. I use Dr. Martin’s watercolor inks because they provide a unique quality that demonstrates a more concentrated and transparent look to each art piece. These colors help capture the simplest emotions. The reason in why I draw females in most of my paintings is because they represent a “mask” of a beautiful figure, each hiding a true darker meaning. I usually hint each piece with a symbolic meaning of an animal or plant to express my real feelings of everyday struggles; moreover, my focus is to relate a sense of “disguise” we all use when confronting our true emotions. Over the years I have experienced the feeling of being overwhelmed and depressed. My work demonstrates the frustration of this hidden feeling. Keeping a secret of my depression from everyone else around me; however, a glimpse into my struggle can be seen though my work.

ʻALALĀ THE HAWAIIAN CROW
Photography: MichaelChad.com Hair & Makeup: DustyJamesBolyard.com Styling/Model: Richard Blayne Walsh Story: Lani Morris & Samara Hunter
GRACE, POWER, PRESENCE
The rare ‘Alalā once lived in the mist of the ancient Hawaiian forests, among the blossoming ʻŌhiʻa Lehua and the broad Koa trees. The beautiful Hawaiian crow with its grace, power, and presence once flourished in these magical island forests. The ‘Alalā is the last of six species of corvid that were native to Hawaii. Today, the ‘Alalā is the rarest crow species in the world and is extinct in the wild.
‘Alalā once had a huge impact on the culture of ancient Hawaiians. The ‘Alalā, along with turtles, owls, sharks and other creatures, were considered ‘aumakua, or highly revered ancestral spirit guides. Each family had an ‘aumakua which protected them, and in return the Hawaiians would honor their ‘aumakua in ceremonies held at a sacred heiau (Hawaiian temple.) Guidance, omens, and warning signs were given to the people through dreams and altered states of consciousness by the ‘aumakua. Hearing or seeing your ‘aumakua was a common occurrence. For the ancient Hawaiians the sound of the ‘Alalā, whose name means “to cry out,” was a very prevalent part of their lives. The unfortunate threats to the ‘Alalā began in the 1900’s. As with other stories of extinction, factors such as predation, hunting, disease, and deforestation led to the rapid decline of the crow. Wild pigs tore up the understory of the forests where the ‘Alalā would hide from their primary predator, the ‘Io, or Hawaiian Hawk. The understory also contained primary food sources, where small underbrush fruits from the ‘Oha Wai, Poha, ‘Ohelo, ‘Akala, and ‘Ie‘ie plants grew. Like most native Hawaiian birds, the ‘Alalā is also prone to disease carried by mosquitoes, and many died from malaria, West Nile virus, pox, and avian flu. The presence of non-native mammalian predators such as cats, rats, and mongoose posed a huge threat to ‘Alalā eggs and nestlings as they would prey upon nests and consume the contents. Other non-native mammals such as pigs, goats, and cattle all contributed to habitat degradation and understory destruction, making it difficult for the ‘Alalā to thrive in their native forests.
Conservation efforts to multiply the ‘Alalā numbers and release them back into the wild have been ongoing since 1973. There are a total of only 109 individuals as of 2013. The crows are now housed at the Keauhou Bird Conservation Center on the Big Island of Hawaii and at the Maui Bird Conservation Center. Both facilities are currently being managed by the Zoological Society of San Diego. Historically, the ‘Alalā are difficult to breed in captivity, but the program is now having greater success with the propagation of the ‘Alalā. With continuing unpredictable climate changes, numerous strains on the U.S. economy, lessening resources and government funding, animal conservation efforts seem to be less of a priority. A volunteer program is being developed at the Maui Bird Conservation Center so the public can assist in the work of preparing for impending ‘Alalā releases. To learn more information about the releases, The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has a species recovery plan for 2014 available to the public online. 2014 will hopefully prove to be a promising year. To donate to help fund the effort to save the rare, magical Hawaiian ‘Alalā from extinction, please contact: The San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research The Maui Bird Conservation Center The Keauhou Bird Conservation Center This project was created and inspired by Dusty James Boylard and Richard Blayne Walsh. It is their mission to create an awareness and bring support to the intensely beautiful ‘Alalā. Stay tuned for an annual gala ball dedicated to the preservation of the ‘Alalā in which 100% of the proceeds will go into funding for protecting this beautiful species.
STICKWORK THE WORKS OF PATRICK DOUGHERT Y S tor y by Lari s sa Treese

If you’ve been lucky enough to experience Patrick Dougherty’s sapling structures in person, you probably encountered thoughts and feelings similar to those you possessed when you were a child…whimsical and imaginative, like you entered a playground of natural elements that you could carelessly frolic within. Sometimes they look like they were always there; the backdrop being of fields or forests set in pristine, undeveloped locations. At other times they seem out of place, creating a dramatic contrast while sharing space with the modern urban landscape.

Transforming saplings into fluid sculptures, some of which you can walk in and out of, Patrick travels all over the world, leaving his mark with over 230 of his structures that have been built to date. His pieces can take up to 3 weeks to construct, and with the help of many volunteers within each community, he visualizes and starts work on his creation. Large quantities of sticks are collected while a layout or model is shared to help unify the design. Enjoying the diversity and camaraderie of his volunteers, their help is utilized through the entire process until the end detailing is needed. With “using the simplest materials in a complex world”, he also occasionally deals with the problem of “being at the mercy of the characteristics of the saplings nearby.” Requiring a mix of different sizes, lengths and girths, nature’s variety has never been so appreciated in simple sticks until you need to search for these specifics in order to build a cohesive structure. Reminding us of a bird’s nest, he bends and molds the materials until the desired effect starts to take shape, sometimes deviating from the original thought as the organic elements take over. What is left can stand for years after, stimulating conversation with those that pass by his thought-provoking works.

His art may look simple at first glance; a sculpture using only one form of medium, but when you delve deeper and realize the intricate detailing and purposeful fluidity, you also discover that it holds something magical; the ability to transform your thoughts and transport you back to a time of childhood innocence, momentarily taking you away from your adult responsibilities. The simplicity and power of his work is astounding, making you feel like you can pick up the next thing you find on the ground and create a new life for it.

â€œFor me making sculptures is a source of renewable energy. It means making something provocative and eye-catching in each new community. It means reaching out and opening oneself to new possibilities. It means doing your best and working just a little over capacity. I think of it as a chance to participate in the largest conversation.â€?

TAKE A TRIP with Larissa Treese
ADVENTURE! This has been one of my favorite words recently. It can mean a day hike with friends, a weekend visit, or leaving your home for a faraway land. Whatever it may be, you begin feeling giddy with excitement and filled with anticipation for what is coming before it even happens. Sometimes that’s part of the journey… the inquiry and planning, talking and dreaming about, or even just the waking up and doing without the research involved. Regardless of the amount of preparation or lack thereof, it is always helpful to think about what to put into your luggage when taking a voyage of your own. I personally have been enjoying the “less is more” approach while taveling anywhere… Vegas, Thailand, Molokai or visiting family; I find it refreshing to know how little I actually require. My favorite form of packing has been a backpack… it stays with you while changing flights or boats, it’s easy to throw over your shoulder and literally fits all you need. Remeber, if you forget anything, you can always buy it at your destination. If you’re traveling somewhere remote or less accessible, you hopefully don’t need it or can live without it anyway. But I have to admit that while traveling, I’ve found it very helpful to have a checklist to keep me focused and also to remember things that I didn’t immediatley think about. On the next page is a printable and usable checklist for traveling anywhere your dreams and passport will take you!
• • • • • •
Remember that you can always wash your clothes on the road and that you will probably buy items along the way. Make a photo of all passport, credit and bank cards you will be traveling with in case you lose them, and give a copy to a trusted friend. Call your bank and credit card company beforehand or they may put a stop to your purchases while traveling. Get appropriate vaccinations beforehand and know that some need to be done within a certain amount of time. If you are visiting a place with temples, check on appropriate customs and dress code. If you lose your drivers license, you can get through TSA while traveling…just with lots of pat downs, security questions and more pat downs! It’s always fun when your friends are watching you too!

BE ADVENTUROUS GETTING OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE Inspiration from Lani Morris Artwork by JenniferJStephens.com
What is on the other side of fear? Usually itâ€™s an opening to unleashing your wildest dreams. Life is full of adventure that is right before your eyes if you are open and available for it.
In our human experience, life can become very humdrum and predictable. For some, this is a safe and comfortable way to live. People who thrive on a routine don’t like it very much when life throws them a curve ball. For others, a predictable lifestyle can be very unsettling and can lead to depression and lack of inspiration. These types of folks usually do well with a lot of life change and excitement. Regardless of whatever type of person you may identify with, we all have experienced levels of change. Change is scary, but it can also be healthy. Change is unexpected, sometimes deliberate, and always holds the potential for a deep learning experience and a bit of adventure. I challenge you to get out of your comfort zone for more change and adventure in your life. It can be extremely difficult to let go of the habits we might cling to, but what are a few things you can let go of? What are a few habits you could break? Start small. When going to your favorite restaurant, order something different. Just try it. You may be pleasantly surprised with the freedom of taking a walk on the wild side. Your favorite dish on the menu will most likely be there when you return. Maybe next time you will want to try a new restaurant. Take a different route to work that’s more scenic and relaxing. While driving, listen to the classical music station, even if your favorite style of music is completely different. This may set a tone for your eight-hour work day that will be very refreshing. These are a few little things you can do to start being more adventurous. Next, start to look into things you have always wanted to do but never have. On a day off, take a hike that you’ve never been on. Go to a play or see a concert. Plan a radical trip out of the country to a faraway land that you have always dreamed of. Get crazy and go skydiving or on a helicopter ride. Go horseback riding and feel the power of such a magnificent animal. Plan an adventure for yourself and make sure that it pushes your buttons and scares the heck out of you. You will be so happy that you did. Also, be curious to discover what’s on the other side. How did it make you feel when you got there? Are you inspired to try more new things and adventures?
The more we start to be open to change and flexibility, the more adventurous our lives will become. Life is so short with no guarantees. Live life to your fullest potential with lots of love and adventure. You will never know until you try!

STRANDED ON A DESERTED ISLAND? Top 4 Must-Have Product Picks by Beauty Editor Lani Morris
With careful thought and a very difficult process of elimination, these are the top four products that will save your skin on any unexpected adventure. An exfoliant is so important for encouraging healthy cellular turnover of the skin. Slough off all the dead stuff with the tropical skin smoother. Feed your skin with the vegan moisturizing mask, deeply replenishing and hydrating. Moisturize and protect your skin with lip balm and a moisturizer with sunscreen. And if you have time to plan being deserted on your island, bring a hat and sunglasses too!

She is now working at her own practice, Beauty By Nature Maui, where she offers a variety of different modalities.
Contact her at BeautyByNatureMaui.com for an appointment for decadent facials, expert waxing, skin care consultations, high quality spa products, and spa home parties.
MyChelle Dermaceuticals Tropical Skin Smoother This amazing exfoliant is one of the best Iâ€™ve ever used. It contains coconut pulp, acai fruit extract, and fruit enzymes sourced from lemon, and pineapple. It is a manual and enzymatic exfoliant, utilizing an ultra fine bamboo stem powder which loosens dead skin, while the fruit acids gently dissolve and lift epidermal cells. For best results apply and scrub gently in a circular motion and leave on the skin for 5 minutes to let the enzymes activate. After rinsing, the coconut pulp leaves skin super hydrated and glowing.
Isun Vegan Moisturizing Mask Literally food for the skin AND edible, this raw superfood mask is rich with high potency antioxidants. It contains raw shea butter from Ghana, extra virgin organic coconut oil blended with agave nectar, goji berries, and raw cacao. It is very rejuvenating and softening, and can quench the driest of skin types. It has the most heavenly chocolate smell with a rich buttery texture. The ultimate treat for the skin and senses.
Dr. Hauschka Lip Balm This intensive, soothing formula is for the driest, chapped lips. It promotes skin renewal as it moisturizes and softens. Itâ€™s formulated with jojoba and wheat germ oils for hydration. It also helps visibly reduce fine lines around the mouth. This product works fabulously in the harshest weather conditions, making it a must for your deserted island adventures.
Naturopathica Lavender Protective Cream SPF 30 This lovely hydrating moisturizer with sun screen will hydrate and protect the skin from outside elements. Micronized zinc provides a non- toxic, physical sunscreen block, while lavender calms irritation and soothes the senses. Red algae extract provides powerful antioxidant protection and macadamia seed oil conditions the skin. ----------------------
