Meleanna Aluli Meyer
Meleanna Meyer is a professional artist who shows regularly in both juried and non-juried exhibitions throughout Hawaiʻi. Her work can be found in numerous collections in the State and beyond. Her formal training at Stanford University gave her a strong foundation, but teaching for over twenty years in a broad range of environments has given her the working knowledge necessary to succeed with all groups of learners.
“A category or genre would be hard to pin me to since the most important thing I look for is that it has something to say – often about Hawaiian issues that must come to light for further constructive debate and conversation. I love to play with color and light, love what the arts do for my soul and love the power of the arts to make a real difference in how I interact in the world.”
She is a published author and filmmaker with 2 films to her credit. Social justice issues with a focus on Identity and voice are valued pathways to create artwork in communities that can offer others deeper insights about themselves and their place in the world.
