THE STORY BEHIND

In ancient Assyria, the goddess Atargatis transformed herself into a mermaid out of shame for accidentally killing her human lover. Mermaids are sometimes associated with perilous events such as floods, storms, shipwrecks, and drownings. In other folk traditions  they can be benevolent or beneficent, bestowing boons or falling in love with humans.

THE ARTISTIC PROCESS

Each item is individually hand made. The silk begins in  natural white and the artistic design is drawn by hand with a gutta resist 

WITH SILK DYES and paint brushes the color is added creating brilliant results.

WHEN DRY the silk is steam set to fix the color. once steaming is complete the silk is  hand washed and ironed

THESE ART PIECES take time and each are unique in their own way. I have made my       best effort to show accurate coloring of the silk and artwork in all my photos 

THE FINISHED  painted  silk tank top is preshrunk and colorfast. Each top is                 individually had cut and handmade and there may be slight variations in detail.
