About LimahanaArtApparel

Sales 424
On Etsy since 2009

Limahana = "Hard-working Hands"

Born and raised in Kuli‘ou‘ou, O‘ahu and a graduate of Kamehameha Schools, Jessica Ke‘ala Kim studied art at the University of Redlands in California and the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, where she received a B.A. in Art History. Her artwork has been shown in exhibitions in the continental U.S., throughout Hawai‘i, in local publications, and in private collections.

Although trained in drawing and painting, Jessica is a self-taught block print artist who carved her first wood block over 15 years ago after researching her Hawaiian genealogy. She learned about her maternal granduncle Edwin Kwan Oe Inn, a self-taught artist who made block print postcards and art. He would send them to Jessica’s mother in Hawai‘i while he was living in San Francisco. Upon seeing her granduncle's beautiful block prints, Jessica was inspired to try block printing as a new medium.

At present, Jessica is primarily a block print artist who draws inspiration from Native Hawaiian history, culture, stories, legends, nature, animals, and ‘Olelo No‘eau (Hawaiian Proverbs).

Jessica formally started her company, Limahana, in late 2014. "Limahana" in Hawaiian means "hard-working hands." Limahana is also significant because it is a family name, tracing back to one of her earliest ancestors.

Her greeting cards, clothing, and apparel may be found at the following locations on the island of Oʻahu: Homegrown store at Pearlridge Center, Nā Mea Hawaiʻi at Ward Center, the Hawaiʻi Mission Houses Museum Gift Shop, and online at her Etsy store: www.jessicakealakim.etsy.com.

Ever since carving her first block print series honoring her genealogy, Jessica seeks to honor and perpetuate the skills and stories her granduncle began so many years ago.
