I just want to thank my friend @crowlili for tagging me a few days ago to post a selfie & random facts about myself. I'm honored to be included as one of her favorite makers & artists of IG! I have also tagged some of my favorite artists as well— please check them out! It's my first time doing this, so here we go:
1⃣ For those who don't already know, my first name is Kelsie-Ann. I use "Sweets" as my business name because it's the nickname my grandparents gave me since I was a baby. My art is as close to my heart as my grandparents since they raised me. So now you know.
2⃣ I just graduated from UH West Oahu last year in December, with a BA in English & Philosophy.
3⃣ Some of you already know that I have 3 part time jobs. I work as a part-time inserter at our local newspaper factory, a tennis coach at my high school, & of course I do temporary tattoos & my Etsy business (I count the two of them as equal to 1 part-time job 🙃).
4⃣ I've been playing tennis since I was 6 years old. I was a star tennis athlete in high school, Junior league, & adult women's league.
5⃣ Most people try to guess my ethnicity by looking at me, & the truth is you could make 10 guesses & most of them would probably be right 😂 I found out from an ancestry test that, in addition to my Filipino, German, Chinese & Hawaiian ethnicities, I am also Greek/Italian, British, Middle Eastern, & North African!
6⃣ At my very core, I am such a hermit. However, I can be very sociable when I need or want to be.
7⃣ My MOST favorite genre of movies & books are fantasy & action-adventure, especially when mixed with other genres too (SF, Historical Fic, mystery, etc.). I am highly critical of movies now, & very skeptical of Disney although I grew up as a 90's Disney baby!
8⃣ My favorite imported premium cigar is Arturo Fuentes Belicoso, Illusione Rothchildes. And my favorite local cigar is Paniolo Especiale.
9⃣ I had my first dance at 1 week old with legendary Kumu Hula Leina'ala Heine for a Brothers Cazimero show in Waikiki.
🔟 Xena: Warrior Princess is still my all-time favorite television show! 😁
Wishing you all a happy Aloha Friday, and a great weekend!
