Studio Manager Art Instructor Wine and Paint Slinger A hop skip away from being a lady in a hut
Master of Puns
Hi, my name is Nakaia! Rhymes with papaya. While my passion for art has been consistent my whole life, my media of choice have changed a lot over the years. Early on: Crayola markers. Later: Sticks and moss and all things nature… think, fairy houses x 1,000. After that: Paint and photography. Most recently: Pen and watercolor, illustrating scenes here and there. Bref, la vie d’une artiste! When I’m not making art, I pass the time with my wonderful, loud friends; I attend to my family of comparatively quiet plants; and I spend afternoons writing letters and cooking with multiple burners. I’m happy to have found a place at Bottle & Bottega and to count myself among a creative crew of goofballs. What a gig. It’s art. It’s wine. It’s FUN. Cheers!
