Alan Sharp

Local artist, Alan Sharp, was born & raised on the Big Island of Hawaii.  Growing up on the East side of the Island in the lush town of Honokaa, he had a passion for wood and carpentry since he was in his teens.  He studied under local teachers and artists in his high school and in college as well.  Alan has worked since 1993 making special furniture pieces and beautiful jewelry boxes.

Alan gains inspiration from his wife and from the beauty of his hometown.  He loves that his roots are right in the Hawaiian Islands which has given him access to a lot of the native woods, especially the highly sought after Koa wood
