Danielle has always been an artistic hands-on type person. However, her passion for art can be traced to her grandfather’s creativity. Coming from generations of artists, she found her passion and enthusiasm through art and teaching. What started out as a fun, somewhat mindless hobby, became an endeavor – a journey to connect with people around the World and throughout her community on the North Shore of Oahu through her artistic exports.
Inspiration strikes me from everywhere. I wake up every day with the goal of finding inspiration, as I believe if you can find that, motivation and happiness will follow naturally. Since becoming a mother, I have found my inner light to give, heal, and teach through my Art. Every day, I work tirelessly to contribute to the Universe by simply being myself: a giver of Light, love, and happiness through Groff Art.
Ashley Kaase is a Hawaii based artist who finds inspiration all around her and often paints from life. Her mother was also an artist and she was raised in pottery studios across the world. Her artistry includes ceramics, printmaking, woodworking and most recently, painting with acrylics and watercolors.
Ashley is inspired by Hawaii’s rich plant life as well as the skylines, sunsets and silhouettes that are unique to these beautiful islands. She does her best to preserve these moments in time forever and share a piece of paradise with her customers. Besides the landscapes, her children are her biggest inspiration. Their portraits were the first watercolor works she ever completed.

Odille "Odi" Schlossberg
Growing up in Argentina and surfing in Uruguay, Odile ‘Odi’ Schlossberg developed an irreplaceable passion for the ocean. It wasn’t long before she started traveling the world in search of surf and new sources of inspiration. She is currently based in Northern California and Hawaii, where she takes inspiration from beautiful coastlines, waves and unique oceanfront forms.
Her style developed from combining principles of graphic design and the fluid motions of acrylic painting. With a background in architecture and design, her artwork incorporates distinct design principles mixed with the organic quality of nature.
“Through art, I aim to express that feeling we get when we see a perfect wave, or when we admire the sunset while we’re sitting on our board…Surf’s Up!”
Mae Waite is an independent artist and illustrator based in Honolulu, Hawaii. She received her BA in Studio Arts from the University of Hawai’i at Manoa. Many of her pieces are an embodiment of her surroundings and the emotions that she pulls from the environment.
I’m driven by the artistic process of creating and emphasizing different techniques. I love to experiment on different surfaces and conjugate different meaning with the mediums I use. I work closely with oils, ink, graphite, watercolors, acrylics, gouache and illustrator applications.
