Jay Joya, Owner

As an art retailer for 10+ years, Jay was faced with the dilemma of customers who loved his art pieces, but still wanting to change something about the frame. He realized it took more time to sell the frame than to sell the art. Recognizing this need, he invested in a small custom framing area for his own art clients.

In 2004, Blue Dot Custom Framing was founded, and it became his prominent business over selling art. Jay has a passion for every art style, photography and preserving your family memories. He has an eye for design, color and texture and takes every clients project as his own.

In his own words:

I’ve been a multi-passionate artist and entrepreneur for as long as I can remember, even when I was flipping pizza at a restaurant chain years ago. That was my first job here in the U. S..

I paint, draw, write, garden, travel, take pictures and keep in touch with friends and family. I’m a proud father of two adult children now, and I’m my wife’s private chef. I’m a professional handicraft artist and love making things from wood, especially old wood. It’s very therapeutic and enjoyable for me to put art and wood together and play with colors. I call this work!

I fell in love with the early morning singing birds and the massaging salt water beaches of Maui the first time I visited here. I moved to the island to establish my well sought after business of picture framing. This place inspires me to do more of everything I like to do – work more, paint more, write more, take more photos, share more and see more places. However, will take on with the Aloha spirit and live one day at a time.

I believe that happiness is contagious, and I plan to share it with you as a friend or a client.
