As an artist, Sunny Seal is awed by the natural beauty and magnificent animals found on our Earth. Living in Hawaii for the last 38 years has increased her commitment to protecting the environment and this knowledge of native species shows in her art through plants and animals in authentic environments. Sunny is especially fond of Hawaiian Monk Seals, having had some very personal experiences with these endangered animals. Whatever medium used, her passion for nature is evident and is transmitted with vigor and solid technique. Sometimes painting “en plein air” and sometimes in the studio, her paintings tempt you to closer contemplations. Like Hawaiian music, the essence of something beautiful is conveyed while communicating an underlying message. This invites the viewer to appreciate each piece in their own unique way.
