Interests and Personality
|Biography||Hi, my name is Troy Francois Carney and I was raised by the ocean in the pictorial community of New Zealand’s Bay Of Plenty. My artwork is inspired by several strong influences. Beginning with my mother, a classically trained, fine artist, and continuing with some extensive travel throughout Asia and the South Pacific as a teenager.
I attended high school on Kauai, Hawaii, where I deepened my appreciation for the interconnections of all Polynesian cultures.
I returned to Kauai in 1992. There I transferred the airbrushing talents that I had refined in Australia’s Gold Coast to Hawaii’s water sport trade. My custom airbrushing was first self taught at my father’s surfboard manufacturing company.
I now reside on Kauai , deep in Kahuna Valley and hand paint in oils and I hope that my work brings resonance to the interior of peoples homes around the world.

|Interests||Although I enjoyed utilizing my skills in the industrial arts, My expertise in finish carpentry led to the appreciation of the fine arts and interior installation. My passion now lies in depicting the many faces of Polynesia and its luscious landscapes and ocean vistas. In 2004, I made the switch from watercolors and acrylics to oil paints. Currently experimenting with mix mediums such as oils on gold leaf and utilizes layering to achieve original, textured effects. I also if i can travels to Vietnam, once a year, to spend time photographing and painting indigenous hill tribes. I'm raising money for these minority peoples through the sale of My prints.
