Aloha from the garden island of Kauai!

Art and clothing are two of my passions and I am delighted to have fallen into this craft that merges the two into creating wearable art. The best part of this experience is getting to co design with my customers. You can choose any item in my shop and customize the color and design to make it work for you. That makes each piece one of a kind (OOAK).

I started hand painting clothing when my sons were toddlers for them to wear and for gifts to give to their friends and it snowballed from there... moms asked for pieces for themselves and my son's school teachers and friends wanted happy, bright, comfortable clothing to wear and here I am 25 years later still painting - now for my grandchildren - we just welcome #5 a month ago and have 2 more on the way in the next couple of months…

Lucky me to do what I love by creating art that you can wear. It warms my heart when I see people's smiles as they look at my children's designs at local craft shows. And it's hard not to have the artist within inspired living in paradise!

For you dog lovers: my profile pic is my beloved harley great dane Murf who passed away in 2012 at 9 years old. He is still hanging here with me in spirit with his "sister", my german shepherd, Ginger, waiting anxiously (heavy dog breath) to take his place as my avatar.

Mahalo nui loa (thank you very much) for taking the time to visit my shop and read about me.

A hui hou - (until we meet again)
