My Story

When my live path brought me to live in Europe an artist friend of mine here taught me the art of silk painting.

I had always been artistic and a crafter and was never at peace unless creating something- wedding cakes, sewing dresses or quilts and scrap-booking.

When my first child was born silk painting was my quiet hobby I could do while he napped. From there my orders grew and my art continued to be my therapy on those hard Mommy of toddler days.

Creating silk scarves and ties bring so much joy to my life. I love being part of the special occassions of those who wear my accessories at their weddings and parties. I love creating those special ties for Grandpa and those special gifts for friends and family.

Each person is so incredibly unique and deserves to have a piece of art that is as special as they are. Hand painted silk is an affordable way to be into art and not only display it at home- but enjoy it yourself!

The Process

Painting silk begins with the purchase of the best silk piece I can lay my hands on. Silk comes in all types of weights, and textures and each enhances the painting in its own unique way. The perfect surface must be chosen before the painting can begin.

Sketches, dreams, long notes with your desires and I begin to design the silk accessory of our dreams. It is at this point that I begin to draw the desired design with gutta or resist onto the prepared and stretched silk.

When the design has set I then begin to paint with the best French dyes and silk paints on the market. Color and imagination combine to create a masterpiece like no other.

When the painting has dried and any final touches are made the colors are set either via extensive steaming or heat.

The silk masterpiece is completed and then begins its journey to its new home with  you- to enhance your natural beauty or accent your handsome face.
