Kalaéja Emaun was born in 1995 in Oakland, California.
She is a self-taught visual artist, illustrator, and jewelry maker.
Kalaéja’s main focus in her painting and drawing is creating symbols of the sacred thread that is woven between all walks of Earth life such as; plant life, animal/insect life, humanity, and the consciousness of fungi. Within her artwork she incorporates representations of the human psyche - creating stories that bridge the gap between fantasy and reality. She frequently draws upon her fascination of Earth with her connection to that of the feminine/female, for the woman is the creatress of all life itself through her sacred portal (womb).
Kalaéja creates jewelry with sacred metals such as Brass and Copper, combined with precious and semi precious crystals and stones, Her jewelry are not only adornment, but sacred healing tools in the form of necklaces, rings, and bracelets. She sees her role as an artist is to help humanity return to the nurturing of the Heart, and to help one heal / remember why they are here. In all that she creates, she is heavily inspired by nature, and the occult.
