Dynamic dancers captured in bronze from the “Fiesta Folklorico” and the “Contemporary Classics” series characterize the recent work of Moana Ponder. Born to a family of professional artists, art has always been an integral part of her life. Reared in Hawaii and educated there at Punaou, she studied art under Dick Nelson as well as her father, John McMahon. She has spent many years as a watercolorist. Working now in bronze she says, “I find working in three dimensions both more challenging and a more fulfilling expression of my inner vision. It has always been my philosophy that art should be beautiful and bring happiness to the artist, and the viewer.”
