    "Your content is real. You share your ups and downs, good and bad days. I can totally relate. I love watching your process from start to finish. When you’re not feeling it and redo your pieces to perfection. You stick to your theme. Your native flowers. But not only do you paint them. You educate on them. It’s not like a random person saying ooh that’s pretty let’s sell it. Every flower has meaning and you share its use, which brings value to your art."

    "[Emily's content] is helpful, with good vibes, to build community. I love that it is very educative on the Hawaiian culture and language. I learn how to respect it and honor it for what it is. It confronts me on my own mistakes and biases in a very tactful and genuine way which I appreciate."
