Mahalo for your interest in working with Rokoff Studio!
Rokoff Studio is an oceanfront gallery in Kona, Hawaii, owned by Alexander Rokoff and his wife Camille that deals exclusively with original oil paintings by Alexander Rokoff.
Alexander has been a career artist for decades and has sold work all over the world. Rokoff Studio & Gallery opened in Kona just as Hawaii started to open up after the pandemic. Prior to the gallery Alexander was selling work at the Four Seasons Haualai and had gallery representation in Waimea.

VALUES & CULTURE
Our mission is to shine light into the world through oil paintings.
Every decision that we make at Rokoff Studio is guided by aloha. We strive to create an environment in the gallery that is festive, welcoming, friendly, inclusive, knowledgeable, and professional yet approachable.
We know that for some people buying a new piece of art can be a big decision, for a variety of reasons. We lead every customer interaction with aloha, enthusiasm, and confidence, helping our collectors to find a painting that will bring joy to their homes for the rest of their lives.
Join our team!
We are looking to fill a sales consultant position to work on-site in the gallery. The ideal candidate is someone who is reliable, motivated and has a positive outlook on life.
You don't need any experience working in an art gallery to qualify for this position. We offer one-on-one training in various aspects of owning a small business, with a focus on sales and marketing. Our specialized training is designed to ensure your success with Rokoff Studio.
We're looking to fill a position that is 10-15 hours a week with a starting hourly wage of $15 plus a 10% commission, and a bonus when quarterly sales targets are met. With our average painting priced at around $2,000, and our top-priced painting selling for $20,000, there's a lot of opportunity.
This is a starting position that could lead to a larger role with our company as we continue to grow.
There will be quick daily one-on-ones with Camille and a review with Alexander and Camille after the first month.
In the daily one-on-one calls, Camille will provide guidance on how to achieve your sales goals, and together you'll review sales interactions from the security camera footage. It may feel awkward watching videos of yourself interacting with customers, but similar to professional athletes, looking at the tapes will give you amazing insight and help you to reach your goals. Which means larger bonuses and opportunities with Rokoff Studio.
- Engaging with customers and providing service that leads to sales is the primary focus of this position
- Encouraging customers to leave Google reviews and follow us on social media
- Two quick daily meetings with Camille to outline/review the sales training focus of the day
- Light housekeeping - Sweeping, dusting, windows, etc.
- Writing painting descriptions for the website - with the help of AI
- Printing and assembling Certificate of Authenticity packages
