Note from shop owner Aloha! Just wanted to let you know I will be in Hawaii for a few months volunteering at the Volcanic National Park. I am super excited for this new opportunity to expand my horizons and meet people from around the world. Wish me luck! You can still contact me through Etsy with request or just to say "Hi" and I will try to get back to you as soon as possible.

About

uNiQue Wearable ART..... shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies and scarves created with a variety of process including printing, discharging and dyeing.

My daughter, McKenzie and I started our Etsy Shop in 2011. She took on the task of setting it all up. McKenzie is presently teaching adults English in China. If interested in her adventures, check out her blog "The Passport Saga".

I have a background in art and have dabble in many medias, but for now I am using a variety of processes to create uNIQue shirts. I was working on my Masters in Art Education when my professor gave me this 2 page article on discharging fabric. My assignment was a wall hanging, but fabric was expensive so I bought t-shirts to tweak my discharging skill. I guess the rest is history. But that wasn't the end.... like any art process it evolves and grows. I discharged t-shirts, taught classes and then 10 years later I was volunteering at the YMCA of the Rockies where I was once more introduced to tie dyeing which changed everything. I starting dyeing my discharged t-shirts. What a difference that made in how I created my discharged shirts.
They say life is a journey..... and I believe art enriches that journey.

    McKenzie, my daughter, had the tech skills to get our shop up and running. For a short time she also sold jewelry. She moved to China last April to teach English to adults. She is missed, but I am excited that she is following her dream.

    Basically this is a one woman show since McKenzie left for China. I make my wearable art using very low tech methods. Discharging, dyeing and screen printing are often combined to create my unique shirts.

WOW! Went down to the Post Office today to send my first package to Europe since they raised the shipping cost....shock. To ship one man's XL t-shirt was $5.00 more than last year. So yes, rates are going up. International shipping does not include either insurance or tracking unless requested for an additional cost. I cannot be responsible for loss or damage during shipment, but if there is a problem, I will try my best to solve it. If you want to add insurance and/or tracking, please contact me before you make the purchase. I will find you a quote and get back to you! International customers are responsible for any custom fees or duties upon delivery that your country imposes. All items will be marked "merchandise", not gifts. Any questions, just ask.
