Born in Pago Pago, America Samoa and grew up in Hilo which is located on the Big Island of Hawaii. Anina spent her childhood summers on Cape Cod, then decided to make the huge move to Massachusetts and call Cape Cod home. Anina is a kindergarten teacher in the Barnstable Public Schools and loves every minute of teaching. Her artwork is inspired by the ocean life of the Pacific and Atlantic seas, where she loves to create a fusion between the two. This EXIT 9B oyster is a great example. Anina will be donating all profits to Cape Kid Meals who provide food over the weekend to school-aged children across the Cape who might otherwise go hungry.
