About James Temple

First of all, thanks for looking at my work here on Fine Art America. I live in Hawaii, 1200 feet above sea level, on the small rural island of Moloka'i. It is very quiet here, with only about 7500 residents, sort of like living in a small town in the middle of the Pacific ocean. I appreciate the quiet life after spending 35 years in the advertising/design/illustration business in Chicago and San Francisco. I spent most of that time working as a commercial illustrator and eventually art director on major food accounts, probably because I have always loved cooking. Eventually that love led me to a degree in the Culinary Arts.

Since then I have designed and built a house on Moloka'i, worked in restaurants, self-published three cookbooks, and took up photography. Lately I spend most of my time developing recipes and photographing them, plus researching and writing about Hawaii's culinary history on my food blog, it's a non-profit labor of love. I invite you to visit my blog even if you are not interested in tropical cooking.

I also have a graphic design website called 'Hawaii Designs' that you can visit at

Aloha, and thanks again,
Chef James Temple
