Lavender Moon Gallery
The Lavender Moon Gallery is located in the small village of Kainaliu, just 7 miles south of Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. The gallery offers a unique collection of local artists that span the spectrum of landscape fine art to a ex sign painter who paints amazing old signage on surfboards. You will also find dazzling one of a kind local jewelry that won’t be duplicated. The Gallery’s beautiful pottery can be safely shipped to your home and will be waiting for you when you return.
Dux and Patricia Missler came to the Big Island in 1983 and opened the Lavender Moon Gallery in December of 1999. Dux’s father had a big influence on his desire to go to college and be an artist. Another great influence on Dux’s expression of his art work came during his time spent living in Hana on the island of Maui.
Patricia also takes a page from her parent’s talents. Her mother was an accomplished seamstress while her father’s hobbies were painting and photography. Growing up in Texas she loved the influence of the Spanish design and architecture now displayed in her paintings and recent home design in the couple’s new home. Their home is located on 5 acres in South Kona high above the ocean at the cooler elevation of nearly 1,600 feet above sea level. There is a beautiful rain forest on their property which they hope to someday share with the many friends that they will welcome to their new home studio and peaceful gardens. These gardens are planted with orchids, gingers, fruit trees, taro and many other exotic plants.
