Alan Wilkinson was born in 1943 in Glendale, California. He majored in sculpture with a minor in Asian art history at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa. Alan came to Hawai‘i in 1963 to surf for a while and ended up staying. Financial reality changed his career course, starting with a job in a local shipyard working on large wooden vessels. In 1968, that job ended and Wilkinson Koa Furniture began. Alan attended training seminars by Sam Maloof, James Krenov, Ian Kirby, Alan Peters, and Art Carpenter, which accelerated his understanding of designing and building furniture. As the furniture got better, so did the clients and commissioned projects. And the rest is history.
