|Biography||Carlson, a resident of Manoa Valley in Honolulu spent his childhood in Minnesota and Idaho before moving to Hawaii in 1983. His father, an avid bird watcher and nature lover, often took him on nature hikes and bird watching. This helped shape his love of nature and choice of subject matter in his art.
Carlson's dream of visiting the tropics was first realized in 1977. That year he was able to travel to several Hawaiian Islands, American and Western Samoa, Fiji and Tahiti in the South Pacific. He knew then that he wanted to live in a tropical climate some day. Carlson says, Coming to Hawaii in 1983, I found my eyes flooded by a stimulating rainbow of God's creation and design. As I search for unlimited subject matter in Hawaii's flora and fauna, I am awed by the Master Artist's handiwork. Each piece I create is in celebration of His creation.
