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 Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Corel Painter.

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