About Me


Welcome to my Tropical Dream Store!

My name is Jacqueline Kealoha Ford and I create colorful and distinctive work to emanate joy and peace. My priority is to bring more light, beauty and kindness into the human experience through creative works! 

I love expressing the vibrant spirits of landscapes, tropical birds, flowers, dancers and people tending to their daily work by bringing them to life with harmonious colors and bold compositions. 
I strive to honor the people, land and culture of Asia and Polynesia through my art work. 

It is very exciting being a part of the barrier breaking generation of women artists who have been shaping the art world for the past 3 decades. As a native San Francisco Bay Area multicultural artist with Hawaiian, Chinese, French and Spanish heritage, I make art that is informed richly by my cultural experiences.

A little side note! My longtime passion is painting Portraits! People, Pets, Nature & Objects!

Please visit my page
to order your custom portrait! There are many examples to view to help you decide what you want and how you want it!

I have been an Arts Educator, teaching and promoting creativity during my 25 yr. career in Bay Area schools, museums and art centers and as an assoc. prof. of art at Cal State East Bay University.

While living in Honolulu for graduate school, I got to dance Hula and Tahitian Ori. Recently I founded the Hula Girl NFT project with some wonderful partners. I am the lead artist and the project lets me effectively merge my passions for Art, Dance and Polynesia! 

I am now in my 50’s, and happily a single mother of a 7 yr. old hula girl who loves to make lots of art with her mom! 

I hope you enjoy this site!
