The first time I saw Jayva’s print, I thought I would like it more than I did.
The house print is so simple, it seems to have been made for an actual print, which Jayva says was a great thing for her to be able to use for her project.
But what she really wanted to do was put a little something of her own on it, so that people would know what to look for.
She says that it’s also meant to be a kind of a statement, so people know, “Look, Jayva Jayeva, you can make this thing.”
Jayva says she’s been working with the print since her husband, Jay Pramas, passed away.
She’s spent the past couple of years trying to get people to buy her print, but she says that she’s never had much luck.
She has been able to find print makers in India, but the market is so small, and they don’t know how to use it.
Jayva has made a lot of print pieces before, but her idea for this one was so simple.
“I just wanted to make my own house print,” she says.
“So I used a lot different things, like different colours, different textures.
And I just made it from scratch.”
So she went to print a couple of times, and eventually she decided to make a million.
The print was created in three colors.
Each print was hand-colored and hand-stamped.
“There was no digital process, just the process of hand painting the print,” Jayva explains.
Jayva did this all by hand, so it was all done on her computer, but it was actually quite labor-intensive.
She made a print in two days.
“And I could do that with a lot less ink, because I had the whole room painted,” Jayava says.
The print is a lot like Jayva herself.
It has an open back, and it’s filled with bubbles.
“You’re not going to be reading anything on this,” Jayeva says, adding that there’s also a picture of her husband on the back.
The whole print has a “slightly more formal” feel, which she says is very appealing to her.
Jayvalas husband died when she was just a baby, and she never really got to spend much time with him, but this print was a big thing for Jayva.
“He was always there for me, always there to talk to me, and that’s something that was really special,” she recalls.
“If I ever feel like I need someone to talk, he’s always there.”
