The beautiful, secluded mountains of Kau on the Big Island of Hawaii are my home. Creating Magical Hawaiian Menehunes is my passion. The wisdom of Hawaiian culture and spirituality inspires me. I do a lot of research to integrate Hawaiian traditions and symbols into my dolls and their stories which has further increased my deep love and respect for all that is Hawaii.
I was born and raised in Germany. Thirty years ago a coincidence caused me to move to Hawaii.
I am an artist, an educational assistant and a computer instructor at our local school. Living in Hawaii has been my greatest inspiration and led me to many wonderful things including the creation of Magical Hawaiian Menehunes.
The mystical Hawaiian Menehunes, often called “the Little People of the Secret Power”, inspired the creation of “Menehune Mana”.
Mana is spiritual energy. It is the source underlying the wisdom of Hawaii’s spiritual journey. Interweaving traditions, teachings, legends and symbolism, “Menehune Mana” embodies Hawaii’s ancient magical spirit.
