The Creative Behind Hina Luna

Sprouted in Northern California, now replanted and well rooted on Hawai'i Island, I am a lifelong art maker, nature lover, relic worshipper and adornment enthusiast. My inspiration blooms from the places I call home (including my ancestral lands), from the practice of everyday personal rituals, and my experience of just being in the world while in pursuit of enjoying beauty in all things.

For several years, I have been reweaving the threads that is the tapestry of my own ancestry. Reconnecting to the people who came before me and the lands they hail from has become a guiding light along my journey with Hina Luna and has supported me in fostering a connection to the island I have the privilege of calling home.

Painting and drawing is my first love and was the focus of my studies during my school years. Those years of training have contributed greatly to my love and knowledge of color, texture, creative vision, and conceptual development and execution. Writing has been a constant subterranean calling, and I am committing to a more consistent practice in 2024 by launching a Substack, Tending Altars.

Currently, I am most lit up by the magic of the everyday and find my creativity expressing itself through the creation of my home spaces and planning intentional small gatherings and dinner parties. Spaces to inspire, to offer beauty, and cultivate connection.

I find joy in creating beautiful meals with humble ingredients, hosting good company around the table, my three black cats and small herd of goats, and sitting around a fire with my partner after a full day tending to the land.
