About the Book
Connecticut based fine artist and illustrator, Chey Bridges, is known for her bright, saturated landscapes and portraits that encapsulate her Hawaiian heritage. She obtained a bachelor’s degree from Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts, where she has honed her oil painting, watercolor and drawing skills. Her interest lies in personifying diversity, women’s empowerment, and Polynesian culture through art. She uniquely combines factual Polynesian history with her own creative fantasy interpretations to produce visually interesting twists on traditional paintings of landscapes and portraits.
