Artist, Co-owner

 Aloha, welcome to our online art gallery! My name is Michelle Dennison.  From the day I was able to pick up a crayon I loved to draw. I got my start selling art at local farmer’s markets and craft fairs around Oahu. In 2015 my husband, Jason, and I accomplished our dream of having our own business when we opened up our own little art stand at the Dole Plantation. I can be shy and soft-spoken but my drawings are fun and playful with a bit of whimsy. My goal is to make art that reminds you of Hawaii and makes you smile!


Artist, Co-owner

Aloha! My name is Jason Dennison. As far back as I can remember I loved to draw and from an early age I knew I wanted to be an artist. My art career began in fifth grade when I started drawing my classmates’ art assignments for 50¢ a piece. I went on to study animation and illustration at Cal State Northridge. I worked in graphic design until 2015 when an opportunity for us to have our own art kiosk at the Dole Plantation opened up. I quit my job and along with my wife, Michelle, committed to making and selling our own art full-time. I haven’t looked back since.


Director of Treats

Aloha! My name is Roscoe. I like treats, long walks and sleeping 18 hours a day; but most of all I like treats! I help Michelle and Jason by reminding them where the treats are stored. When I'm not getting enough attention I like to steal their paintbrushes and trade them for treats. My favorite treats are cheese, peanut butter and anything vaguely edible found on our walks.
