I am a painter, and silk is my canvas. I start with a white piece of silk from China and paint on this silk using tiny bamboo brushes. I then make these silk paintings into clothing. I design, cut, and sew each garment by hand. This is truly wearable art. All of my paintings are one of a kind and signed. There is no mass printing or silk screening.
I began my life long relationship with fiber when I was eight years old. My first projects were wool rugs and tapestries. During the last seven years I focused exclusively on silk painting. Having been fortunate to live in Hawaii and Aspen, I draw my inspiration from both of these settings. I love to create one of a kind silk clothing.
I promote my wearable art at three different locations. I wholesale to stores and boutiques. I sell on my website and I travel the county with my family doing art shows
