This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following was submitted by the artist, July 2003.

Ed Furuike was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii during the days when Hawaii was still a territory of the United States. When he was 14 years old in 1959, Hawaii became the 50th State of the Union bringing major changes to his casual Hawaiian lifestyle. He started painting in 1975 using only a palette knife, and became one of Hawaii's oil painters, best known for his interpretation of the subject. "When I held the palette knife for the first time, I knew what I would be doing for the rest of my life."

Furuike's passion and love of nature's fragile beauty is intended to be reflected in his work as he traveled about the Islands and captured the mystical beauty of the mountains and tropical air of the Pacific sea. He traveled to Japan in 1984, painting the country's subtle beauty and culture. In 1996 he journeyed to London and France, visiting Paris, Versailles and Monet's Garden in Giverny, painting and absorbing the beauty and the rich artistic history of those countries.

In 1995, Furuike began to share his knowledge of painting with five students. In 2001, when he closed the classes, he had over 40 students. "Paint with your soul." This is what he stressed. He also found much satisfaction and healing for teacher and student alike. He believes that art heals and through a couple of his students, he has become interested in spirituality and has studied the art of Reiki and Sacred Healing. "I have discovered different perspectives in my journey through life which has made a tremendous difference in my painting and my love of people and life itself. I know my path through life have been dotted with many people or angels who have loved and helped me move toward my dreams. I hope that some day some people will say that I did the same for them."

One of his paintings is on the front cover of the Hawaiian history textbook, "A History of Hawaii", which is used in Hawaii's public and private schools.

He describes his method as "heavy impasto with a soft and ethereal effect using a single palette knife. I go out to paint on location painting as well as in the studio with photographs." He says his "subject matter ranges from natural still life, seascapes, landscapes and human interests."
