I’m Alana, and I create under the name Banshee’s House of Dye in Sacramento, CA.
In 2011, I received my BFA from the University of Montevallo, where I concentrated in Printmaking. I started tie dyeing in 2020 when I had too much time on my hands and a pile of dingy white clothes that I wasn’t ready to part with. I’ve never met a tie dye technique I didn’t like: liquid, ice, LWI, HWI, bleach, geodes, stitching… If I see it, I'll try it!
Banshee is my familiar, and cat of 13 years, as well as my business partner. I found Banshee mewing on the sidewalk at 6-weeks-old while I was walking to a college class one afternoon. She began purring as soon as I picked her up and since that day has brought love to every person she’s ever met.
