I have ordered from this shop before and I will order again. I love her hand painted clothes. This dress is perfect. Shipping was prompt and the owner was a delight to work with. My dress is blue with a shell in the middle of the neckline.

About

Hand painted Clothing - Wearable Art inspired by the beauty of Kaua'i, Hawaii

I opened my Etsy shop in January of 2010 which was also the very sad month I lost my great dane avatar at 9 years old. His name was Murphy or Murf for short. The events were really unrelated but a lot of people comment on him so it seems worth the mention.

This launch on Etsy was preceded by more than 20 years of creating for craft fairs, local stores and customers who came my way via the coconut wireless. Etsy's global platform has opened up my shop to the rest of the world. I have become acquainted with some wonderful people as customers and as shop owners. I wholly embrace Etsy as a fabulous 24/7 worldwide venue for shopping and selling.

When I began painting my son were young, they are now grown and their frankly adorable children from age 4 on down with more on the way are now wearing my clothes along with my lovely daughter in laws! I look forward to lots more modeling from my beloved family members!

Painting and creating is my bliss and my pure fun time. The fact that my creations make my customers happy as well seems like a pretty perfect fit and getting to live in a paradise whilst doing something I love is unbelievable.

My first Etsy customer met with me while she was on Kaua'i - that was really special! In general I love watching people's faces when they first see my clothing, especially my whimsical children's pieces - the smiles are priceless.

I love to share my wearable art and am honored that you are taking the time to read about me.

To answer a few more oft asked questions - no I am not a native of Hawaii, moved here from Southern California in the late 70's. m And my name is not Danish… it is the outcome of being the 2nd daughter born to my father who was named Peter and is the feminine version of his name.

Aloha - which means hello, goodbye and love and A hui hou - which means until we meet again.

    Owner, Artist

    Aloha from my home in paradise on the Garden Island of Kaua'i in Hawaii. I have been creating hand painted clothes, or wearable art as I like to call it, for the last 20+ years combining two of my passions - art and beautiful comfortable clothing.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept paypal and direct payment.
Shipping
I ship items via USPS Priority Mail with delivery confirmation and insurance. Generally items ship within one to two weeks, sometimes sooner, I will convo you if it might take longer and I always post on my shop if I am off island (as they say here) and when I will return. As we get closer to the holidays expediting shipping becomes more of a challenge - I can ship RTS (ready to ship) items right away - items I need to paint will take 1 - 2 weeks or more.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be 100 % satisfied with your purchase. Exchanges of unwashed items are welcome for a different size or style or for a store credit. Return shipping is paid by the customer.

I am also happy to replace any item that is damaged or lost in transit once the claim is filed with the post office.

The only exception is for special orders - if I paint an item for you that is not normally carried in my shop I will do my best to ensure that it is exactly what you requested in terms of sizing and design but I will not be able to accept exchanges on special orders unless it is a style and design that I can resell.

Measurements are available for every item so please ensure that you are ordering the correct size. If hemming is required there will be an additional charge since I have to outsource for this. All my blanks are made for me before I paint them.
Additional policies and FAQs
Paint colors can photograph differently then they will look in person. The color of the finished product depends on many things - the weather such as if it's rainy it takes longer to dry, where I am in the bottle of paint - sometimes it's lighter near the bottom and darker near the top even when I shake it up. Hand painted clothing is a work of art and will not be as uniform in color as conventionally dyed fabrics.

Bottom line is I want you to be happy with your purchase from me so please refer to my policy above. I take pride in my work and love what I do and hope you will also.
