Attalia Alverdes has always had the creative bug. She always says “I taught myself how to French braid from a Barbie magazine at the age of 8”, which led to her first career as a Cosmetologist at the age of 18. After working as a Cosmetologist for a few years, she decided to expand her love of people and get her degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management from the University of Wisconsin – Stout. Her first job in the hospitality field landed her at a Hotel in Sacramento, California where she met her now husband, Eric Alverdes. Attalia, Eric and their two girls have since moved all over the country to pursue their love of hospitality and adventure. Over the years they have lived in California (3x's), Washington (2x's), Wisconsin, Minnesota, the Big Island of Hawaii and now Kauai.
It was on the Big Island in October of 2015, that Attalia started putting her creative artistic abilities to wood art. Since then she has been making wood and string art for her friends and for her family’s collection at home. After traveling with her family for the next four years for Eric’s work, she decided to make her love of art a full-time career and leave the hotel world officially. Now that she and her family are back on the islands, she knew she wanted to share her gift of art with the world and the visitors of Kauai. You can find Attalia's work at various craft festivals, art walks, and farmers markets around the island or right here on Pineapple-Expressions.com
Attalia's love for crafting has now become a family affair. She is so grateful for her family's support. Her daughters love working the luaus she attends as well as finding shells on the beaches to help complete her work. Her husband helps do the wood working for all pieces and is a huge support behind the scenes and attends most fairs by her side.
