Aloha de Mele pieces are hand-drawn in Hawaii and all inspired by its beauty, culture, and people. Ranging from simple silhouettes to complex Lei Po'o, each art piece was created to make a statement and exude good vibes and the aloha spirit no matter your location.
The founder, JT Ojerio, is a self-taught artist that was born and raised on the beautiful island of O'ahu. For most of her life, she was obsessed with sports and fitness. However, in 2017, she discovered her love for drawing by chance after she suffered a hip injury that resulted in surgery.
While she was recovering, JT was able to explore her creative side for the first time and began drawing images that reminded her of Hawaii and the aloha spirit that she missed so much. She quickly fell in love with the peace that drawing gave her and continued throughout her recovery with her dog, Mele, at her side.
