Courtney Kaye
Artist and Designer
Hand Painted Clothing and Objects

Honolulu, Hawaii


My Designs are original "Art to Wear" in the form of Clothing,

beetle dress

Painted Kaftan and Slip dress

earrings, miniature oil Paintings and Dolls.


Dolls in Basket

There are also "Fascinating" Hats, and Greeting or Note Cards.

Some of my clothing designs are made using a reverse-resist method.
I purchase natural fiber clothing, (mostly dresses and t-shirts) then paint them with bleach.
This is sometimes called "Shibori" which looks like Japanese Tie-Dye. Usually I paint with a brush with more directional designs.
