Garth creates unique art combining wood burning, carving and painting together to create images and characters filled with imagination and energy. Garth grew up and spent most of his life in Oregon prior to moving his family to Maui at the start of 2013. When Garth was young he visited the Hopi reservation in Arizona and has recently reconnected with the Hopi through many visits there over the past 4 years.
A lot of influence from the Hopi can be seen in Garth’s work, his rattles in particular are an ode to that form. Used in ceremonies and having powers beyond our understanding, Garth’s rattles are not just art but invoke the realm of Magic. Just one shake and you can alter the universe they say. From his rattles to his wall hangings Garth puts his heart and soul into each piece he makes and hopes that the energy in each piece will add joy and wonder to your day. https://www.facebook.com/garthmarriottart
