ABOUT

Hi! Gday! Aloha! Siyo! Fáilte!

My name is Lehonani Bryyane McEchaidh, a South Sea Polynesian Islander Cherokee who is  a mother, carer and artisan with many cultures flowing through my veins.  I graduated from a Diploma of Interior Design and Decoration in November 2018 and a Bachelor of Arts (Fine Arts) in 2015.  Drawing and textiles are a passion, and whilst I do each separately, I am about to embark on a cultural fusion in both.  And speaking of fusion, the image you see to the left is of my father merged with my own image, wolf clan and Celtic art representing my Irish ancestry.  I am my father's daughter.

Having a Diploma in Interior Design ultimately means I am able to hep decorate and build floor plans and rooms for people.  This is something I will do down the track.  My ultimate goal would be to house the homeless and low income earners into tiny homes, whilst decorating the world with art all at once.  For now, I want to create!

As an artisan, I love drawing, textile design, surface pattern design, website design, printmaking and sculpture; and for over twenty (20) years, have also spent my time working in the area of graphic design.  In my spare time I love to cook, watch TV, spend time with my children and stay healthy.

My mana is in my culture; I identify as a South Sea Islander, Polynesian and Cherokee.  The wolf is my spirit animal and my clan and my home is where my family are at.  I decided to combine my cultural names into one group; for ease and for something a little different to get people talking!

Thank you for dropping by; and please take a look around at the site and where I sell artwork.  Interior Design work is not featured on here as yet; I'm still working out the finer details of how I would like to do things in this area, but please check back at any stage to see what's happening!
