Need ideas on where to display your Surfboard?

YOU ARE IN LUCK!!! Kim's designer surfboards can be placed just about anywhere. Enhance your interior with a splash of color and excitement. 

These hand painted surfboards are all hand shaped on Maui by local shaper, David Gott. Kim paints them in the raw foam form, then they are sent back to David for the final glassing and sanding stages. Each surfboard is a one of a kind piece you are sure to enjoy for years to come. 

Take a piece of Maui home with you!

News from Kauai...


Things are moving and shaking on Kauai, so I just wanted to keep you all posted on where you can find my art!

After 10 great years, Jim and Elizabeth Cupid have decided to close down the Kim McDonald Art Gallery in Hanalei, but I am pleased to tell you that you will now be able to view and purchase my art, including my latest series, at the Red Koi Collection located in the Shops of Kuku'ula in Koloa!

I am very excited to be heading over to Kauai next week to install 14 new works at the newly renovated Beach House Restaurant, so I hope you will be able to dine and enjoy the new pieces soon!

If you are on Maui, please call us to set up a private studio visit in Paia!

I have an abundance of artwork for viewing, including originals of my latest series, giclee prints from the classic images, as well as unique prints that are only available in the studio ranging in multiple sizes.

If you aren't lucky enough to be on Kauai or Maui, all available artwork can be purchased via phone or this website.
