Kat Reeder’s mastery of color and texture is directly influenced by her love of the Hawaiian Islands and the print she created for LeSportsac, Moana Ahe, is no different. A unique fusion of Pin-Up Art, 60’s Tropicalia, and Art Nouveau, the print celebrates an exotic ideal of Hawaii’s past, with tropical beauties, romantic landscapes, and nostalgic undertones.
Reeder’s work can be seen in galleries throughout Hawaii, Japan, and the US Mainland. She currently resides on Oahu’s leeward side, though she hails from sunny Miami, Florida.
At a press reception at LeSportsac’s Royal Hawaiian center, the artist showcased some of her paintings that draw on the story that she tells through her LeSportsac print. The reception was followed by a meet the artist session for LeSportsac and Reeder fans and a travel set giveaway featuring the Moana Ahe print.
