Colorful Love In Black n White
I love Etsy and have made several purchases from the sellers there. Just for fun, I searched the site for the term biracial. The picture above is one of about a dozen entries I found. I contacted The Green Appetite and asked her for the story behind her art. Below is part of her response. Enjoy.

I sat one day at my sewing table and pondered on what to make. I wanted to make something that isn’t already out there but that people would appreciate. (So goes a lot of us etsyiens) Now, I can’t really tell you what brought me to create my first couple but after I made it, my mind started turning somersaults. I realized that there are a lot of couples out there who may have trouble with their relationships or marriages because biracial relationships are still to this day very negative in the minds of so many people. They have to deal with the negativity that comes from friends and family. I, myself, haven’t had to deal with the issue, but I know of people who have and it wasn’t pretty, if you know what I mean. So I thought that this would be a way to brighten someone’s day.

    Neat-o! Thanks for sharing this. It’s so difficult to find art and other images of specifically WMBW interracial couples. This is cool 🙂

    I found The Green Appetite the same way. And I contacted her for a custom piece of art that looked like me and my boyfriend. She was wonderful to work with and the piece looks incredible. I can’t wait to see it in person. On a side note, I have to say that it surprised and saddened me to find so few biracial items available on Etsy.
