     When ordering older products, you'll notice a discrepancy in names. Dana Black was my married name back in the 70s and 80s. Divorce happens. Fortunately, I have finally (well, he found me) found the right one, but I am keeping my maiden name this time around! 

Clothing and Housewares

Hand Painted Denim Clothing - I collect and recycle denim, diligently searching thrift stores and friends' closets for pieces that "speak" to me - that say, "I am your next canvas!" But, I can only wear so much denim. These pieces all are hand-painted with original designs.

Kau Kau Kitchen Printed T-Shirts, Pullovers, Etc - I also publish my artwork on t-shirts and other products through Cafe Press. The Kau Kau Kitchen line focuses on food and fun.

Hawaiian Greeting Cards for All Occasions - In 1994 I started a line of Hawaiian Language greeting cards. At the time, I hand painted and hand-screened each and every one of them. They retailed for $2 - $6 each in fine art stores on the islands of Hawai`i and Maui. Thank heavens for modern technology! Now, I am putting the designs on-line, where you can by them at a MUCH lower cost - Just a few of my cards are up right now, but I am adding more as I scan them and re-format them for the new technology! 

Wrench Wench T-Shirts and More - Features my line of lady motorcyclist art.

`Umeke - a bowl made from a Hawaiian gourd. Order with or without carrying net, with or without lid. As each one is individually hand crafted, prices vary considerable, so e-mail Leilehua by clicking on `umeke and telling her what you are looking for.
