Home Remedy

So, I’ve been doing my shirt-painting for quite a while now. Typically I use it to embellish baby clothes, but recently I discovered that it’s really great for giving any old shirt a second life!

The other week, I was wearing my favorite purple shirt while playing with bleach (really silly of me, I know).. and, as expected, some bleach jumped out of the container and introduced itself to my lovely purple shirt.

I was very sad and thinking that I might have to toss this shirt that I love so much. However, I decided to expand my shirt-painting uses and see if the paint would cover a bleach stain. I had a new design that would be perfect for a lower corner placement and it would cover a good amount of space, so I gave it a whirl…

And voila! the shirt was as good as new! And, as an added side bonus, I can now wear one of my own designs (which, when painting predominantly baby clothes, was difficult to do before).

I love how it turned out!

I've been active in the arts pretty much my entire life. Growing up, my home was filled with creativity; my dad's an accomplished painter and my mom has always harbored a great love for music and art and they passed it on down to their kids. When I was a little, my parents saw my avid interest (and inclination to draw on any available space - including school tests and myself) and they gave me a sketch book for my birthday and things have just blossomed from there. Officially, my main focus of study has been music, but my true love has always been art. I've been commissioned as an illustrator for kids books, a portrait painter, creator of center pieces for private parties and, most recently, a designer of kids clothes. My aim is for the designs to express a whimsical and playful feel to reflect the essence of childhood. However, I also strive to branch out from the generic "pink princess" and "sports fan" designs that are so prevalent out there. Every kid has their own personality, why not express it?
