BILL BRADEN has been a part of the art community in Hawaii for more than 20 years. In 1991, The City and County of Honolulu selected Bill from over 200 applicants for a commission called "The Best Beaches of Hawaii".

Braden was educated at The Royal Academy of Art in London, The Rhode Island School of Design in Providence and in Rome, Italy. A specialty of this artist is public scale sculptures and murals. He is also in collaboration with The Nature Conservancy on "The Most Beautiful Places on Earth". Bill's portfolio continues to grow as he explores and creates new ways to blend art and culture.

In all of Braden's new projects, the ideas reflect the artist's mission statement: to create lasting art that celebrates God's creations - nature, people and culture – and leaves a legacy that celebrates our common heritage.
