Alopeka Art is comprised of sisters Tamsen Fox and Jamie Fox. The word Alopeka means Fox in Hawaiian.
Born and raised in Nu’uanu, the two sisters share a love of Hawai’i, which is reflected in their home-grown art. Tamsen is a multi-media artist who danced the hula as a girl with an ipu in her hands. Now her hands commemorate ancient and contemporary Hawaiian designs via her unique ipu pieces.
Jamie, a former children's musical theater director, has turned her creative expression into a line of handmade, whimsical pillows called Pillow Talk. Jamie’s pillows are adorned with favorite island and inspirational words and sayings. Jamie also has a line of personalized pillows for children called My First Surfboard.
The Fox sisters brainstorm their pieces and work together in a tiny studio on the slopes of Punchbowl Crater and have created Alopeka Art to express the fusion of their creative minds.
Since this website is predominantly about Tamsen's art, this page is dedicated to Jamie's part of Alopeka Art although the sisters work together on many projects, so mostly pictured here are the pillows. You can see all the other pages for Tamsen's work.
