ISLAND DREAM LIFE ~ Tropical Paradise Paintings

It's time to feature another great artist.




Welcome to "Island Dream Life". My name is LisaBongZee and I live in Hawaii. I love to paint tropical island paradise scenes. Anything from tiny secluded tiki huts, to Polynesian fisherman, to the lush tropical flowers and plants that grow here in the "Land Of Aloha".

Most are imaginary places in my mind.... in my dreams. A perfect far off land, devoid of problems and politics. A simple life, with no alarm clock, no schedule. Where the only work is paddling out for that perfect wave, or fishing in a turquoise lagoon while the cool island breeze sends sweet smelling Frangipani your way…….

Having lived in Hawaii most of my life, I have been able to experience some of the "Island Dream Life" of this very special place. Through my paintings, I hope to be able to capture the peaceful, serene Paradise that most of us dream about!

Oils are my favorite, although I do enjoy watercolors, as well. I am always up for trying new innovations and ideas, which keeps my style ever changing.

Some of my other hobbies include surfing, snowboarding, hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, and working out in my yard of beautiful tropicals, which are the inspiration for many of my paintings!

Mahalo for taking the time to view my artwork.
