Aloha! I'm Joelle ʻIhilani Birano. I was born on Oʻahu and raised in Hilo, Hawaiʻi where I currently reside with my Maui boy husband and three beautiful daughters. One day in 2010 while I was waiting around to give birth to my oldest child, I started a blog. At first it was just a hobby. I enjoyed writing about our day-to-day activities but I soon found myself obsessed with designing and re-designing my blog. This placed me squarely on the path to designing and creating and I've been on that path ever since.

In the past six years I designed several websites, taken a ton of photos, designed graphics and taken my graphics to the real world in stationery and clothing. My work has been featured in both Honolulu Magazine and Mana Magazine, but I especially love when my work reaches someone on a personal level.
