Island of Big Island

Inspiration takes many forms through the hands of award-winning woodworker Timothy Allan Shafto. From koa and exotic wood platters with translucent details, to freeform koa sculptures and beautifully balanced calabashes, he creates with a passion for quality. His latest work combines bold, shimmering colors to create abstract color flow paintings. “Hawai‘i provides inspiration everywhere I look—from the incredible wood of the native koa tree, to the vivid colors of the ocean and sky,” says Tim. “I am grateful to call Hawai‘i home.” Visit to purchase available works, locate galleries, or contact Tim.
