Artist Emi Nakamura

Emi Nakamura was born and raised in Kaneohe, Hawaii, the lushest and rainiest town on the island of Oahu. Being surrounded by postcard views and culturally blended people, it’s no surprise that her passion for art came at a young age. At just eleven years old she'd already taught herself to draw realistically using instructional books from the library. Years of obsessive experimentation and practice led to her niches in portraiture and landscape painting, and a love for working with oil paints, colored pencil, and charcoal. Although she is primarily self-taught, her study of art includes four years at The University of Hawaii at Manoa earning a BA in studio art in 2011.


Since then it was clear that Emi would follow her entrepreneurial spirit to take her art-making to the next level. She resides in Honolulu where her art is for sale at a gallery, gift shop, and online at redbubble.com. In 2013-2014, reproductions of her artwork have been purchased by dozens across Hawaii and throughout the US mainland, Japan, Canada, and the United Kingdom, with her work steadily increasing in demand. Interestingly, Honu 'O Ke Kai, an oil painting that was created when she was only a sophomore in high school, has become her best-selling work. Emi is currently working on expanding her body of artwork and launching a new venture that will focus on helping young artists pursue their passion as a business.
