Mike Field is living the dream of balancing work, family and play to where they all blend together and afford a life with limited aggravation and continued delight. A celebrated waterman, a family man, and a extremely gifted artist. He has emerged as one of the most sought after artists in Hawaii and around the world, with exhibitions in New York, London and Shanghai. His uncanny ability to capture the beauty of the Islands generates a timeless representation of “Old Hawaii” with a sophisticated modern arrangement.
Mike was born in Guam and raised in Hawaii. His inspiration for his creativity comes from the Polynesian lifestyle, its ocean and the floras that canvas the islands. In his fine prints, people share the spotlight along with the island landscape, the vegetation, and ocean.
Having experienced years of surfing, sailing and canoe paddling in the Pacific Ocean, Mike’s art has a very unique approach. While most artists capture the vantage point of looking outward from the land to the ocean, many of Mike’s pieces change this perspective. He has the ability to make you feel as if you are a part of the canvas.
Mike lives on the island of Hawaii, in the small artistic town of Holualoa, with his wife Terry, son Luke and daughter Paloma. When he’s not in his studio creating new pieces, he can be found talking story at his store, surfing with his kids or sailing his canoe.
