Spawned and raised in the state of Hawaii, Chenoa has been drawing since she was capable of holding a crayon. Inspired by video games, graphic novels, books, and movies, she spent more time doodling or taking pictures of things than paying attention to her math homework. 

 Having earned a B.F.A. in Illustration from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Chenoa is now armed with the know-how to draw things with tools more advanced than crayons. Such as Photoshop, and Corel Painter.

 When not being distracted by delicious cupcakes or video games, she paints/draws digitally but is capable of doing so in other mediums such as acrylic, oil, oil pastels, color pencils, charcoal, pen and ink, watercolor, and gouache.
