I’m Cody Roberts, founder of Pono Visions.
Thank you so much for visiting. As an award-winning, fine art photographer I am sincerely grateful to call the island of Maui, Hawai’i my home.
Born and raised near Chicago, I grew up with a true passion for the creative arts. At the age of 18 I left my small hometown in Indiana to pursue a radically different lifestyle in the islands of Hawai’i. Now a decade later, my life and career in the visual arts are beyond what I ever would have imagined.
Being an adventurist at heart, I discovered my greatest inspiration from the humbling and healing mana(energy) through exploring Hawai’i’s raw landscapes and extraordinary locations. Upon this quest to create true meaning and purpose through my work, I began working and volunteering with local conservation projects to learn, document, and experience the rapid change happening within the islands’ native ecosystems. Hence, Pono Visions was born.
My artistic vision is to create unique perspectives of raw, powerful landscapes that inspire humans and art collectors a true connection with nature. To help promote the importance of preserving and restoring the endangered species and habitats that are essential for the health of our planet. A portion of proceeds from fine art prints of select works are donated to non-profit, environmental organizations.
