Welcome to my website. E komo mai!

I love to paint, and I love to share my knowledge and appreciation of the Hawaiian landscape, its unique flora and fauna, and rich cultural history with one and all. These are my tropical dreams . . . made with paint brush in hand.

Hawaii is a special place, and I consider myself privileged to be able to live here and share it with others.

A Kailua Kona resident since 1984, artist Lisa Bunge invites you to enjoy her unique renditions of old Hawaii, it’s proud people, historical landmarks and tropical flora and fauna.

Painting scenes of old Hawaii often gives Lisa the chance to meet many of the people whose lives are associated with the scenes, providing her with a rare glimpse and understanding of the days gone by as well as the true aloha spirit of many of Hawaii’s long-time residents. Her paintings reflect that same sense of spirit to the viewer.

Having spent many years working on and around the ocean, she became especially inspired to capture the grace and beauty of Hawaii’s sea creatures. The honu (turtle) is one of her favorite subjects.
Painting since she was a young child, Bunge has developed her talents by working with a wide variety of teachers and techniques.

Commissioned works are available; Lisa welcomes the opportunity to create a one of a kind piece of art just for you with your choice of size, medium, color and subject matter!

Aloha, friends and collectors!

Happy holidays! I hope this message finds you enjoying the holiday season. I thought it would be a good time to share some of my new artwork with you. For those of you that are on island, I will mention that I have delivered new artwork to all of my galleries recently, so if you ge a chance, drop in and check them out. They are listed below and on my website at For those of you off island, just know that soon you will be able to see all the giclees and other types of prints that are available on my website, and I will be adding more of my new work.

Until then here is a preview…many of you will remember the diptych “Island’s Warm Embrace”. I was lucky enough to be commissioned to do another diptych to go with it and now it has become a quadriptych. That’s a painting that has four parts. It is available as a limited edition giclee.

Island’s Warm Embrace Quadriptych

I also completed a painting of the Bamboo Restaurant and Gallery in Hawi. It had a new paint job and you can see the new look in this original acrylic that was painted on canvas. It is available as an open edition giclee on canvas and on paper.


Here are a few more recent works

Hau’oli Makahiki Hou!


How time flies!

Aloha, friends and ohana!

Since we are well past halfway in 2015, I’d like to share a few of the things I’ve been up to since last report.  

It’s been a busy year for me, as I have been painting away in my studio, as well as en plein air.  The Kona/Kohala coast is a boundless source of inspiration for the artist, and I feel privileged to have this special place as my open air studio and model. Always there, at my beck and call, what more can an artist ask for?

I’ve painted a significant portion of this island landscape, but I’m still making new discoveries.  If you have a special place I haven’t yet painted, I’m open to commissions, too.


This is my most recent painting, the iconic Eva Parker Woods Cottage at the Mauna Lani, on the Kohala Coast.

This historic home sits on the even older Kalahuipua'a fish ponds, and is a modern day survivor that embodies classic Hawaiiana in it’s purest, most idyllic form.

Who, at times, doesn’t imagine themselves leisurely taking in the view from their oceanfront lanai in a bygone era?

Here are a few others from this year.


(top to bottom) Ahuena Heiau, Soft Morning Glow, Pu'uhonua and Springtime Snow In Kona (coffee blossoms)

Stay in touch.  I’d love to hear from you, from near or far.

Aloha a nui loa,

Aloha, And Mele Kalikimaka!

Warm wishes for a joyous holiday, from Santa and Mrs. Claus (Mitch and Lisa).

As 2014 draws to a close, I just wanted to send a holiday greeting and share with you some of my pieces that I have created this year.

I’ve been painting regularly “en plein air” all along the Kona Coast. I now have paintings of special places from Manini Beach to Mahaiula in addition to my regular studio work. As you see it’s allowed me to painting quite a variety of subjects.



It never ceases to amaze me that the more I paint the more inspiration I find for the next painting. 






Wishing you and yours a happy, healthy and joyous 2015!

“Good Morning Kona” as featured on the January / February 2014 cover of Ke Ola Magazine

2014 Is Off To A Fast Start


I’m excited to announce that I have been chosen for the cover of the January 2014 issue of Ke Ola Magazine.  The cover features my latest painting, a breaching whale titled “Good Morning Kona”.  Inside, is a very nice article about yours truly.  It is a great honor to be chosen for this, and I am both excited and humbled by the experience.

I also have a shiny new website to add to the celebration. I will expand it over time and perhaps add an e-commerce storefront, but for now it is a great way to present visitors a sampling of my work, and offer a variety of ways to purchase it.  Those on the Big Island can visit one of the numerous galleries that carry my originals and giclees.  Others, can contact me directly for originals or giclees, or purchase decor prints from Fine Art

This is the first post of my new blog/website.  I will do my best to continue regular postings and will make a point to add photos of new works here as I work on and complete them.
