Interests and Personality

BiographyHi, 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. To view My online collections, visit www.troycarney.com and www.exotictribes.com.
InterestsAlthough 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.

Thank you Troy. But it is mail again does not function.. Yes, this place unusual,I think that it was a sheer pleasure for monks to live there and to draw frescos :)

Nelly ( Deleted user )

Oh,,I have just now seen your comments, I did not know that it is possible to leave them here under works. Thanks!... In general I am "zero" in the computer. In my site there is nobody to be engaged and I am not able, now I place all my latest works here....

I don't know what you look like or any thing about you, but I feel like I'm in love, you and I have so much in common. So let's get married and I will give you all my money and my pet monkey. We could live happily ever after in Nigeria, scamming stupid people on the Net. Who cares what other people may think, even if you don't have a head we are made for one another. Me and you and my monkey Sue.

Hi Troy, I loved your Blazing Hula. Here in London it's a very chilly start to 2009 and seeing your paintings of pacific islanders has really cheered me up. Keep up the good work. I was interested to see that you have made the transition from acrylics to oils. What made you do that? I have always painted in oils which kind of suits me as I can only grab an hour or so painting here and there and when I come back the paint is still wet. Best wishes. Mark
