Welcome Nature and imagination are my biggest inspirations. I construct my images by applying non-toxic resists and dyes to stretched, suspended silk. I love the intuitive nature of painting freehand, the process is just as interesting to me as the end result. I never trace my designs or use stencils, and each piece is a one-of-a-kind work of wearable art.
I'm interested in using my art as a platform to uplift and inspire others, though the deep inner joy that is cultivated in my process.
About my process I go to very careful measures to ensure all of the products listed in my shop are the highest quality of craftsmanship. Because each of my designs are carefully painted by hand, as well as rolled and hemmed by hand, each piece will have its own unique characteristics and an energy that simply doesn't exist with mass-produced work.
I use only the finest hand-hemmed silks available, and each scarf is painted with professional grade, non-toxic silk dyes, then steam set for at least 4 hours. The combination of the heat and moisture from the steam chemically bonds the dye to the silk fibers, ensuring rich, vivid colors that will not fade, making each piece hand-washable.
