Shelley Hoist's Profile
I am a self taught, award winning fiber artist from Kona, Hawaii. Creating art has always been a part of my life. Inspired by nature and found treasures, I create stand alone art pieces and functional art vessels from the sheath of various types of palms.
The challenge of manipulating the palm fiber inspires me to continually create new shapes and techniques. Resembling leather, wood, or fabric, the material remains lightweight and durable. These elegant, sculptural shapes echo the natural beauty and simplicity of the islands and bring texture and warmth to your home or business.
I have been creating palm fiber art for over 15 years, and I am a member of a number of a number of arts and crafts organizations.
