Kim Duffett began sculpting abstract birds in wood at age six. He went on to study sculpture, painting and the human figure. Upon graduating, Kim traveled for five years through Europe and Africa studying their art. Returning to the United States, he eventually moved to Hawaii in 1979. A three year sailing voyage in the South Pacific brought him in contact with other Polynesian artistic traditions. Duffett’s focus has been on creating large scale, abstract & figurative works for public spaces. Working in bronze, stone, cast resin and ceramics, his career achievements include several large scale, commissioned works for the Hilton and other locations in Hawaii. His work is in private collections in Italy, Canada, Holland, Australia, Hong Kong, Panama, New Zealand and the US.
