Lehuauakea Fernandez is a mixed Native Hawaiian interdisciplinary artist from Hilo, Hawaiʻi. She has participated in several group shows in Portland, Oregon, most recently the 23rd Annual Recent Graduates Exhibition at Blackfish Gallery. Through a range of craft-based media, her art serves as a means of exploring ecological relationships, mixed-Indigenous cultural identity, and what it means to live within the context of contemporary political, social, and environmental degradation.
She currently lives and works in Portland after recently earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Painting, with a minor in Art + Ecology at Pacific Northwest College of Art.
