Wai'ala Ahn lives on her Hawai'i island homestead with her partner and son. As a lineal descendant of Hawai'i, Wai'ala sees her legacy rooted in conservation, culture, and living close to the land with reverence and aloha. 


Wai'ala identifies as a mother, educator, artist, and storyteller. She runs a multi-generational small scale flower farm on her land with the help of her family. She is a keiki o ka ‘āina (child of the land).  

As a land steward, and a nature based artist working in fiber arts, floral artistry and traditional lei making; she weaves her passion of sustainability, preservation, perpetuation and reciprocity for the natural world into all she shares through storytelling, folklore, hands on experience and honoring the interconnectedness of land, people and practice.

Waiʻala resides on the misty mountain slopes of Mauna Loa, in a tiny off grid cottage where she grows much of what is needed for her natural dye workshops, floral artistry, flower csa subscriptions, collaborative events, community gatherings and medicine making. You can learn more about her offerings, and get in touch at @petalsandpigments on IG.
