Roy Tabora

Roy Tabora

For anyone that has experienced the magical beauty of the Hawaiian Islands, and wanted to capture that beauty for eternity, the paintings of Roy Tabora will hold a special place in their heart.  His imagery evokes nature's beauty in a myriad of settings and may transport the audience to a time and place of his own creation. The personal interpretation of his world as seen through his eyes comes from his heart. These compositions reflect the artist's deepest convictions and silently project the emotions he feels.

However, in spite of all that has been said or read about the art, the best way to experience the art is to see it in person.  When you are inches away from it, imagine the artist in that same spot where you stand and try to imagine the last stroke that was placed. 

And just when you think you have experienced this art to its fullest, imagine it in your home where you can access inspiration on a daily basis, starting your day with a glorious sunrise and ending under starlit skies.



  1. Thirteen years ago, we were in Haleiwa visiting family and we walked into your studio. We were taken away by the beauty of your work. Unfortunately, at the time we were only able to purchase a print, but your store manager informed us you were on site. We asked to speak with you and not only were you gracious enough to come out and sign our print, but you shared with us your passion. You spent time showing us paintings and telling us about locations that had inspired them. Until this day, we have your framed and autographed print on our wall and think of that very special day every time we see it. Thank you for being not only a talented artist, but also a special person who imparts your passion to others.

  2. Hi great artist Roy Tabora
    I am a lover of your art, which I consider one of the masterpieces of Humanity.
    I am an amateur digital artist (researcher Moroccan geographer and blogger).
    I ask you, dear great artist, permission to post an article in my blog about your art and your personality; In the category "A MASTERPIECE, IN THE HISTORY OF PAINTING".
    I will use information from your site, and an image of one of your creation.

  3. 27 years ago my husband and I were married and went on an amazing honeymoon all over America and finished in Hawaii. While in Waikiki we where able to purchase the most amazing prints that I had ever seen. I had them framed and they were in my house for 15 years. When we moved they were damaged and the whole family me, my husband and our 2 boys were quite upset. 2014 we returned to Hawaii for a holiday with our boys and saw your Gallery. They straight away recognized your paintings. In the excitement of seeing all of your work the boys wanted to get another one to replace our damaged prints. They knew how much I loved the other ones we had. As the previous ones were only prints we decided , this time we would purchase an original painting, so we purchased one and had it shipped to Australia. When making our final arrangements for the painting you were in the gallery painting and we got to meet you. I was so star struck I was like a school child. You signed a small canvas for us and allowed us to take photos. Your painting sits pride position in our office at the front of the house and everyone makes a comment about it as they walk in. We had special lights installed to show the true effects of your paintings. I have since been back to Hawaii in 2018 with friends and I still have to go into the gallery and look at your work. I havent been able to purchase another print yet, but I follow you on instagram and love what you do everyday. It gives me a calming feeling just looking at your work. you inspire me to want to paint. Thank you for being you. "Mahalo"
