About me

Occupation Creative Director & Producer
Location Tokyo, Hawaii, Japan
Introduction I am from Hawai'i, a tropical paradise with the most beautiful culture of music and dance. I learned to love nature, art and people as I grew up surrounded by the mountains and the sea. I danced hula as a young girl until my teens. I studied art/design/photography at the University of Hawaii, got a degree in Fine Arts, got married and moved to Japan - my roots. I started a creative agency in 1991, discovered Blythe in 1999 and is now CEO of the CWC Group. Also started a hula studio - Hālau Nāpualikolokelani in Tokyo. My Nā Kumu are Jay Jay Akiona who passed away in 2007, Aunty Keʻala Kukona who passed away in 2009. Now I am guided by Kumu Hōkūlani Holt since 2011. May she live a long long life!
