Eli Kauage is the wife of the late Mathius Kauage and mama to the many Kauage inspired artists.   Although Eli worked on many of her husbands pieces, and could have even been responsible for some of them, she did not establish herself as an artist in her own right until after his death.

Eli can be found selling her fantastic work outside the Holiday Inn most days and is a regular at the Ela Beach Markets.
