About

My husband and I moved to the Big Island of Hawaii after falling in love with the beauty of the island on our honeymoon. For the past 2 decades we have lived, and continue to live in the middle of a Hawaiian rainforest surrounded by native Ohia trees, large Hawaiian Hapu'u tree ferns, wild orchids, mosses, and native wild life such as Pu'eo Hawaiian owls, I'o Hawaiian hawks, and other rare endemic birds.

We cleared our property ourselves by hand for months, and dozed just for our driveway and house pad in order to save as many trees as possible. We have hundreds of oxygen producing tall trees on our property.

We worked at various places and it wasn't until I came up with the original idea for hand rolled sushi candles made from beeswax sheets in 1996, that we were able to start our arts and crafts business from that one idea…

We came up with the name Double Brush for our company because we are both artists:)

We believe in being responsible stewards of the planet in both our personal lifestyle and business choices. To keep our carbon footprint as low as possible, we have one small car which we drive to town with usually only once a week. We dry our clothes and linens on a sunshine powered clothes line. We have a water catchment system for our house, where rain water is collected from the roof and goes into a large storage tank, and then filtered for our household needs.

Currently we are having lots of fun designing digital prints, especially our new Keep Calm prints.

Our other Etsy stores are:

For unique soy candles, beeswax candles, and our original sushi candles.

http://www.etsy.com/shop/willkissforprints
For high quality prints and custom prints. What would you kiss for?
