Where Trade Winds Blow by Jerome Fisher
Called “The Master of Watercolor” by critics around the world, Jerome Fisher was born in 1946, in Stockton, California and began drawing at the age of 17. In 1965, at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, he began his formal education in painting under the guidance of acclaimed master painter and watercolorist, Mr. Peter Egeli. later, he attended the Maryland Institute College of Art, acquiring his degree in Art Education from Towson State University, in Maryland.
Jerome has traveled and painted all across the United States, including 10 years on the island of Maui where he moved in 1976. Blending real life subjects into his paintings, and with an eye for detail, Jerome’s works often represent a historical documentary of disappearing American architecture and culture. Jerome’s love affair with the tropical scape continues to lure him back to Maui, where he continues his pictorial documentary.

Hand-made Rattan Frames
Though the design has changed over the years, we commission these Rattan frames through a small family owned company in The Philippines. Your frame is the result of trial and error of the last 20 years! Rattan is a vine-like Palm that requires forest cover in order to thrive. Rattan grows throughout the jungle for over a quarter of a mile. Its trunk can span a diameter of over two inches down to the thickness of a human hair. The harvester’s collection process is performed by hand by a simple machete. Ultimately, the rattan vine cannot survive without the forest. Rattan quickly regenerates. As a result, this method of harvesting protects the destruction of the forest.
