Olowalu Honu by Drew Sulock
Drew Sulock, originally from Philadelphia, has lived on several islands throughout the Caribbean before settling on Maui in 2009.Throughout his life, he has always been amazed by the earth’s natural beauty, both above and below sea level. He has spent his entire adult life working on the water, and is inspired to share this world with everyone through photography.
Drew’s work has been featured by several publications including Maui No Ka Oi Magazine, Climbing Magazine, ESPN+, and National Geographic Online. He leads student expeditions for National Geographic teaching photography and marine conservation.
Before becoming an award winning photographer, Drew received a masters degree in marine science. While doing research on coral reefs throughout the world, he was struck by the overwhelming beauty of the underwater environment. It was not long before he realized he could do more to help marine life by sharing images of this stunning ecosystem through his photos, than he could by solely conducting research. Someone needs to show the world what we are trying to preserve, and the images Drew has created aim to do that.
What is a Mirrored Print & Gallery Wrap?
Canvas for Gallery Wrap
Take a good look at your print; it may look a bit unusual near the edges. We print an extra 2½ inches of reflected “mirrored” borders, to ensure that when it is stretched, the finished product does not lose any of the actual art! This also allows you to choose stretcher bar frames in a variety of thickness up to 2″ deep with your framer.
If you have purchased a non-mirrored canvas to gallery wrap, you may lose important parts of the art, such as signatures. Typically we suggest framing artwork smaller than 16″x20″ rather than stretching it as a gallery wrap.
Custom Wood Frames
If you prefer the contemporary look in your home, we have a variety of wood frames to choose from. Walnut, Cherry, Black and White frames are custom made in house to order, with a 1.5″ – 1.75″ width on each side, it compliments the artwork for any artist, photographer or map.
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.
