Kelsie Dayna_Island Glazed

Kelsie Dayna Kalohi is a Honolulu-based illustrator and artist. Born and raised on Oahu, Kelsie's work is heavily inspired by her local upbringing. Her work seeks to bring fun and smiles into the humdrum of everyday life through the use of bright, playful colors.

After losing her corporate office job during the pandemic, Kelsie turned her love of art into a career.  Although not traditionally trained, art has always been and continues to be a driving force and source of expression for Kelsie.
