The Sewell Studio


"Be healthy, make art, have FUN."

- Tom Sewell

The Sewell Studio functions as a creative incubation of minds and ideas. It offers a diverse portfolio to both expand on, collaborate with, and be a part of. The Sewell Studio is focused on the design and creation of experience, and the stories from which those experiences derive. Operating in creative consulting, fine art, photography, video and digital media, The Sewell Studio can take on projects of any discipline and any magnitude. Working with a team of designers, creators, interns and artists, this true collaborative effort yields some of the most amazing results. Spontaneous creativity and fun unfold in weekly videos, photo shoots, parties, installations and infinitely more here on the island of Maui, and around the world. What began as just an artist, has accelerated beyond and idea to become a lifestyle and a reality. The Sewell Studio takes the incredible inspiration of its' leader, Tom Sewell, and manifests it into amazing things done by/with amazing people. It is magic, serendipity, story, and most of all fun.
