Sirens & Pineapple

Green & Gold Metallic Ink
on Archival Paper

Mythical Sirens flock proudly around a luscious golden Pineapple,
creating a surreal and tropical landscape.

Subtle shades of amber and metallic gold glitter on a background of bright white.

I carve and print these by hand, one at a time, using ink and rollers. I mix the colors myself, so each has its own unique ink color distribution and ink texture - each print is special.

This print is part of my *Fabulous Wallflowers* print series,
where plants, animals, and human forms merge
to form a world of fanciful transformative beings.
Inspired by decorative arts, folklore, archetype, and nature,
Fabulous Wallflowers hide in decorative patterns,
gracefully gazing out from the woodwork
to remind us of the unity, harmony, and balance of living things.

About the Print Process:~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Linocut Relief Printing is a process comparable to making a giant rubber stamp, but upside-down! I print the images by hand, mixing the ink individually for each print to create variations in ink color, thickness and texture (wabisabi). I love this process because I can produce as many prints as I want, and yet each print has a unique look: the most irregular prints are often favored by collectors.

    Get the Right Size!

    Small? Large? Eek! The inconsistency of clothing sizes makes us a little nuts. We're doing our best to conform to conventional sizes. However, like EVERY clothing company, our sizes might be different than other companies' sizes. So we highly recommend that you:

    1) See the item descriptions for the sizes and measurements of each piece.

    2) Measure yourself carefully, or measure a similar item that fits you. If you don't have a measuring tape, you can use a piece of string and a ruler.

    3) If you are not sure of your size, please order a size larger than your usual size.

    4) Athletic and Swim wear fits like Nike or Speedo. Please consider that it's designed to fit tightly and stay on while you run or swim.

    Thank you for measuring!
